Jeannie Thib Print Media Award

The Jeannie Thib Print Media Award will be awarded to an undergraduate student enrolled in the School of Arts, Media, Performance and Design. The award will be open to first year students taking at least one course in the Print Media area (in Visual Art and Art History), and/or 2nd, 3rd or 4th year students majoring in Print Media. To be eligible students must demonstrate artistic excellence as assessed by a Visual Arts faculty evaluator, and a minimum secondary school average of 75% for incoming students or undergraduate grade point average of 6.0. Jeannie was a graduate of the Visual Arts. She went on to become a talented, well-respected and successful artist who created a legacy of beautiful and powerful work. Jeannie's art is very much like Jeannie: quiet, thoughtful, good-natured, precise, calming and sometimes perfect. In Thib's hands the decorative became strong and habitable: precision resulted in enhanced expressiveness and texture became something akin to utterance. Her senses of lightness, delicacy, play and the nature of materials increasingly became a strong language for the building of a more beautiful and satisfactory world. Jeannie was generous with her time, always available to talk about her artistic experiences, share her knowledge and encourage young artists in their endeavours.
