Surrey-raised artist Simranpreet Anand among 3 in Canada awarded Hnatyshyn Foundation prize

Surrey-raised Simranpreet Anand is among three Canadian “emerging artist” award winners, as declared by Ontario’s The Hnatyshyn Foundation.

The organization’s William and Meredith Saunderson Prizes for Emerging Artists has been awarded to Anand along with Dan Cardinal McCartney and Oreka James, each given $5,000 and accolades that come with the national award.

Honoured are young emerging visual artists “whose practice shows potential and is deemed to have the determination and talent to contribute to the legacy of art in Canada,” explains a post on the foundation’s website (rjhf.com).
