Shelburne County watercolour artist Lio Lo was awarded an "Artist Commission" by the Shelburne County Arts Council. The Jordan Falls painter will receive $2000 toward the creation of a new body of work. Lio says she plans to work on a series of paintings depicting morning light. Many of the paintings will be set in Shelburne County. The works will be exhibited for a short time in August 2013 at the Osprey Arts Centre before being sent to a private gallery in Halifax where they will be exhibited for sale.
SCAC's Commissioning Program is designed to support and to encourage excellence in local artists of all genres. Previous commissions went to The Hupman Brothers. They wrote songs for their first CD. Bill Smith wrote an original score for a play performed by Basement Theatre. Russel Crosby built his first mandolin and E. Alex Pierce penned a long poem about Shelburne County that was named one of the top 50 poems in Canada last year. Last year, SCAC commissioned three local artists to create musical sculptures that will be installed on walking trails in spring of 2013.
