Art student wins national prize
Alison Cude, a Master’s student in Art Conservation, has won one of five awards given out by the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW).
The Dr. Alice E. Wilson Awards are worth $6,000 each and are awarded to mature students returning to graduate studies. Dr. Wilson was a CFUW member, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and the first woman to hold a professional position at the Geological Survey of Canada.
Ms. Cude’s research focuses on the deterioration of artists’ materials, specifically in artwork produced in dynamic situations where very different cultures met and exchanged information and knowledge.
