Feel free to watch “Long Hair Revolution” on YouTube to see an atypical Long Hair in 2004 that is calm and reflective during one of the most eventful months in Hong Kong financial and political history.

Wednesday, 22 October, 2008

I am so excited for my friend Christine Cheung for winning a Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Foundation’s emerging artists award. Here is an excerpt from Calgary Herald “Lieutenant-Governor awards for local artists“,

Five Calgary artists emerged from bed Monday $10,000 richer, thanks to a new arts award sponsored by the Alberta Lieutenant- Governor.

Calgary filmmaker and animator Anne Koizumi, theatre director Simon Mallett, multi-media artist Chad VanGaalen, installation artist Robin Arseneault, and painter Christine Cheung were selected along with singer/songwriter Colleen Brown, composer Aaron Gervais and violinist Andrew Wan of Edmonton, sculptor Dawn Deterando of Red Deer and novelist Sherry Coffey of Athabasca as the initial recipients of the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Foundation’s emerging artists awards.

[…] Each winner receives a cheque for $10,000, with no stipulations as to how they can spend it.

Here is my extensive video interview with Christine earlier this year in Feb 2008.

Congrats Christine. I’m so happy for you.
