And the 2022 Arty Award goes to…
Frank is a champion of the arts on Gabriola. He has served on the Gabriola Arts Council Board, volunteered at Cultivate, for the Studio Tour, the Isle of the Arts Festival, Gabriola Reads, and more. The number of hours he has contributed to the community from the goodness of his heart is astounding.
He supports the arts by purchasing locally made crafts and artwork not only for his home, but quite frequently as gifts. His support continues in his dedication to visiting most if not all studios on the Studio Tour, every single year.
Frank’s art for is basket weaving and woodworking, and he has worked long hours maintaining and improving the Gabriola Arts Council property, including designing and building the sound clouds which have improved the acoustics in the Gabriola Arts and Heritage Centre.
The Gabriola Arts Council and the Isle of the Arts Festival is so very pleased to pass on the Arty Award to this amazing person.
