Winnipeg artist Koop honoured with research fund
THE Canadian Art Foundation has launched a new fund in honour of Winnipeg artist Wanda Koop. The Wanda Koop Research Fund will offer support to artists who would like to research or are completing research, says a Thursday release. Koop’s four-decade career includes more than 50 exhibitions across Canada and internationally. In 1984, Koop and her artwork made the cover of the premier issue of Canadian Art magazine. The fund was officially launched Thursday night at Canadian Art’s annual fundraiser in Toronto.
