Two LCCVI graduates have been recognized by the Gallery in the Grove for their artistic talents.

Olivia Bourne and Tanis DeGurse were recently awarded the gallery’s student art scholarships. Bourne will be taking graphic design at Fanshawe College, while DeGurse will be heading to the University of Windsor to take visual arts/concurrent education on her way to become a high school art teacher.

Gwen Moore, the education chair of the gallery’s board of directors said $140,000 in scholarships have been awarded since 1982 shortly after the gallery opened.
