Emily Carr

The 2006 vintage paid tribute to Emily Carr, one of the greatest western Canadian artists and as such, commemorated the launch of our first vintage in February of 2008 at a reception at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design.
The reception showcased 15 finalists of the Meyer Family Vineyard painting competition. Over 80 submissions were received and $5,000 cash awards were dispersed to five deserving, emerging artists who were selected by a distinguished jury. The works submitted for the competition were shown during a special exhibition at Emily Carr Gallery from February 12-16, 2008. The top three entries shared in a prize of $5000 which was announced in mid February 2008.
The finalists were Nayeob Kim and Jay Gazley.  Honourable mentions were awarded to Chun Hua Catherine Dong and Chad Durnford.
