This trust fund was created in Galen’s honour.
A graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Galen was committed to living and working as an artist until an unfortunate collision took his life in May 2004, one day before his 30th birthday. His photographic skills and eye were in demand, especially amongst the artists’ community.
Mission Statement: To find artists active but unrecognized working in a manner which broadens vision and raises consciousness while incorporating artistry into everyday life.
The directors of this fund will meet to consensually award that artist a prize. The prize will be awarded without an application process as a surprise and could consist of raw materials, resource materials, and/or money towards encouraging further work. The youthful aspect will be appraised on a basis of the originality of the vision and approach rather than chronological age.
