Arts Council chair Susanne Barclay watches as director Mary Tucker presents the Carol Burrill Award to Elizabeth Mulridge.

PECI student Elizabeth Mulridge gained a boost for her post-secondary school ambitions in the arts last week.

Mulridge received the $500 Carol Burrill Arts Award from the County arts council at their annual general meeting.

Artist Peta Hall took the lead in ensuring the arts council honour Burrill, a well-known local artist who died suddenly in October 2013, by renaming its student award in her honour. The award also honours donations made in Carol’s memory.

Mulridge, who intends to study animation at Loyalist College in September, was introduced at the meeting by Mary Tucker.

“Elizabeth has had a strong interest in drawing from an early age and can usually be seen with a sketchbook in hand. Her main interest is character studies where instead of creating just one image, she transforms a still frame, giving it movement and life.

“I have loved to draw from doodles on undreds of sheets of losse lined paper to keeping up to 10 hardcover sketchbooks,” Mulridge told the arts council.

When Mulridge graduates from PECI this month, she will have finished three years of visual arts classes, along with dramatic arts and photography.

Also honoured at the meeting with Business Recognition Awards were Peter and Celia Sage, of Sage Design and Construction and Tara Wilkinson and Andrew Csafordi, who both operate studio galleries.
