The Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation is proud to announce Charline Collette the 2021 recipient of the Nel Oudemans award
Charline Colette is an impressive emerging artist in the New Brunswick cultural landscape whose work in fiber embraces both traditional and contemporary image making processes. Trained in art and engineering, her approach to textile art is sensitive, innovative and cerebral. Her creative drive, described by nominator Paul Édouard Bourque, flows from a deep love of textile for its possibility to engage viewers in critical discourse. The Nel Oudemans Award is a recognition of both the present accomplishments of this Campbellton based artist and the future potential of her ongoing artistic career.
