Laura Ciruls Painting Fund
Laura Ciruls was a professional graphic and web designer, as well as a traditional acrylic and watercolour painter. Through way of a bequest, Laura set up the Laura Ciruls Painting Fund, to recognize artists like herself, who were contributing to the development of painting in Ontario.
This award, beginning in 2012, will be awarded annually to an artist who is past the early stages of their professional career.
