North Thompson Arts Council (NTAC) member, Katherine Semrick, received some very good news on Nov. 29. Semrick received a letter of congratulations noting she had been approved for “Active Status” by the Federation of Canadian Artists.
Once an artist has honed their skills as an artist at the “Supporting” membership level of the Federation of Canadian Artists you can apply for “Active Status”. Ten pieces of original art are submitted to be juried. A very high level of professionalism is required. They look for a consistent level of ability and skill.
“I made it!” wrote Semrick on the NTAC Facebook page, “Onward and Upward!”
