Join us in congratulating Gallery Direct’s Artist Shirley Williams! Shirley has won the inaugural Elizabeth Havelock Grant from the Windsor Endowment for the Arts. The annual award is presented to one mid-career artist who’s made significant contributions to arts and culture in their community. We could not be happier to have this award go to one of our own Gallery Direct Artists.
Shirley accepted the award at a reception hosted last week. The image above shows Shirley (middle) being honored by Federal MP Brian Masse and Councillor Joanne Gignac.
” We all enjoyed a lovely evening in an enchanting, recently revived, historical building. They served the most tasty and tempting appetizers. We were also treated to an exquisite piano recital of Chopin and Rachmaninoff,” said Shirley Williams.
