2012 Presentation Ceremony


At the Monday, September 10 Carter Wosk 8th Annual BC Creative Achievement Awards for Applied Art and Design Event, five applied artists were honoured: Lisa Henriques of West Vancouver for ceramics, Mary and Sarah Schweiger of Vancouver for broom making and Christian Woo of Vancouver for furniture. The BC Creative Achievement Award of Distinction was awarded to renowned international fashion designer Catherine Regehr.

The Honourable Ida Chong, member of the Board of the BC Achievement Foundation, presented the awards at a lively reception at Shaw TV Studios attended by family, friends, colleagues and jury members Sam Carter, Rob Johnston and Martha Sturdy.

Keith Mitchell, Chair of the BC Achievement Foundation, welcomed members of the BC arts community including Stanley Hamilton, Chair of the BC Arts Council, past juried recipients Brent Comber, Rob Johnston and Judson Beaumont. Also attending were recipients of BC Creative Achievement Award of Distinction, Joanna Staniskis and Martha Sturdy.

Catherine Regehr was introduced in a video by Fred Cawsey of Front Runner Productions, Inc. and received a quintessentially British Columbian certificate - with each component from the frame to the typography produced by British Columbia artists.

The juried recipients received the right to use the BC Creative Achievement Award of Excellence in Applied Art and Design seal and prize money of $5,000.
