“Holding Spirit”

“The painting is on its way to our main office in Winnipeg, MB. It will be kept safely there in our collection until such time as the National Research Centre is ready to accept it once our mandate expires some after June 2014. You may be assured that we will treasure your gift and look forward to the day it is displayed at the National Research Centre to commemorate the work of artists such as you who are reflecting so powerfully on our journey of healing and reconciliation through the beauty of artistic expression.” ​
