Weppler, Mahovsky awarded Glenfiddich Artists in Residence prize

  • Print

The artistic duo of Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky have been awarded the 2014 Canadian Glenfiddich Artists in Residence prize.

Weppler, who was born in Winnipeg and now lives in Toronto, teams up with the Calgary-born Mahovsky on sculptural still lifes.

"We are so honoured to be selected for the Glenfiddich residency," Weppler and Mahovsky said in a joint statement. "It gives us a much appreciated chance to connect with other artists from around the world in a unique location."

The Weppler-Mahovsky team are only one of 10 global recipients of the Glenfiddich prize this year, allowing them to live and work on their art during a three-month residency at the Glenfiddich single malt whisky distillery in Dufftown, Scotland.

"Weppler’s and Mahovsky’s use of materials, tied so closely to those that are central to the crafting of Glenfiddich (copper and wood) promises to provide an outcome significantly tied into the unique opportunity that is the Glenfiddich experience," Andy Fairgrieve, curator of the artists-in-residence prize, says in a release.

It’s the second year in a row that there’s a Manitoba connection to the Glenfiddich prize. Daniel Barrow, another Winnipeg-born artist, won the award in 2013.
