The Peter Honeywell Mid-Career Artist Award, which was renamed in 2019 to honor the legacy of the long-time Council Executive Director, was established to recognize and encourage the achievements of Ottawa artists of all disciplines who have evolved beyond the emerging stage in their career to become recognized professional working artists contributing to the community.
This year’s shortlisted artists are AM Dumouchel, Rebecca Noelle, and Eric Von Allan.
AM Dumouchel is a visual artist and teacher. Her exhibition De la chair vers l’os will be presented at Art Image Gallery in Gatineau in May 2020.
Rebecca Noelle is a musical creator, producer, and songwriter. Her primary discipline was as a pianist, but has since broadened to include vocal performance, percussion, composition and production.
Von Allan is the comic book artist/writer of “the road to god knows…”, “Stargazer,” and “Wizards for Hire,” as well as the new ongoing series, “Wolf’s Head.”
The recipient will receive a $5,000 award. The two other finalists will receive $1,000 awards.
