Lindisfarne Productions was happy once again to team up with the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts to sponsor and create the award videos for their annual Here’s Nina gala event!
This year we had the pleasure of profiling Nina Haggerty artists: Jamie Laventure III, Aba Garbrah, Katryna Dixon, Kimberly Casarin, and Lora Pallister.
Jamie Laventure III received the Realtors Community Foundation Create Award. Jamie’s favourite medium is clay. He likes to make things and animals he sees outside using lots of colour and detail.
Aba Garbrah received the Rotary Club of Edmonton Northeast Connect Award. Aba specializes in art celebrating Black Canadian culture. She dedicated her award to her family – specifically her parents.
Katryna Dixon received the Canterbury Foundation Changed Life Award. Katryna learned a lot of her painting techniques from watching PBS shows. She loves using lots of colour in her art.
Lora Pallister received Stantec Artist of the Year. Lora’s favourite medium is painting, she finds it very relaxing. She loves using strong colours and painting landscapes.
Kim Casarin received the ATB Emerging Artist Award. Kim always considered herself an artist, and used art to communicate from an early age. She found the Nina with the help of her mother. Kim truly believes that art saved her life.
