"I am very excited for the opportunity that the grant from the Lacombe Arts Foundation is providing me with. One of my goals is to develop a ceramic glaze using locally dug clay, and the impurities in the clay could result in a variety of surfaces and colors," she added.
For now, Molly wants to continue learning as much as she can about ceramics, since it is a medium that that she truly enjoys working with, and wants to pursue for as long as she can.
As well, two young emerging artists, Jamie Kullman and Sarah Ritchie were awarded $250 each for participating in the 2011 Lacombe Art Exhibit and Sale. The grants are made possible in part through support from the Palette Pleasers Gourmet Cafe at the annual Lacombe Art Exhibit and Sale and the annual Arts Gala fundraising event.
