Stanzie Tooth receives Joseph Plaskett Award
We are thrilled to announce that Stanzie Tooth is this years recipient of the Joseph Plaskett Award. The award is the legacy of the generous, Canadian-born artist and philanthropist, Joseph Plaskett (1918 – 2014). The award was established in 2004 to support a mature Canadian student to travel and/or study art in Europe for one year. Congratulations Stanzie!
We would like to thank the The Joseph Plackett Foundation, The Royal Academy of the Arts and this years jury Jennifer Lefort, Carol Wainio, and Jonathan Shaughnessy.

When the formation of the foundation was announced in 2004, Mr. Plaskett said, "I created this award in emulation of what Emily Carr did for me in 1946. I would like young Canadian artists to enjoy the privileges I experienced more than a half century ago. Europe and, above all, France, have left me richer in knowledge and experience. Although things have changed a great deal since I first travelled and studied abroad, the lesson of Europe and it's past is always waiting for those ready to learn."
Stanzie Tooth is an MFA candidate at the University of Ottawa. In 2007 she received her BFA from the Ontario College of Art & Design with an award for excellence in painting. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across Canada including “60 Painters” at Humber College, an ambitious overview of contemporary Canadian painting.
