"It was a great privilege for me to open your exhibit, Portraits of the North, at the Manitoba Museum last month. The portraits and biographies in the exhibit not only show your expertise as an artist and cultural historian, but also clearly reflect your commitment to the people of the North. Your work is truly a bridge between two cultures."
