The Saskatchewan Writers' Guild is proud to host the unveiling of the Dorothy Knowles painting of "The Beach #1" in the VIP Room of Saskatoon's Persephone Theatre. This event will be held at 2 pm on July 19 at the theatre, 100 Spadina Cr. E.
In anticipation of the Annual Kloppenburg Award for Literary Excellence, Cheryl and Henry Kloppenburg will introduce the work of one of Canada's supreme landscape painters Dorothy Knowles. Knowles has most generously donated one of her magical watercolours of Waskesiu to mark the establishment of the Cheryl and Henry Kloppenburg Award for Literary Excellence.
Established in May 2010, the Kloppenburg Award consists of $10,000, donated by Cheryl and Henry Kloppenburg, lawyers by profession but philanthropists at heart, and a limited edition print of the Dorothy Knowles painting. The three Honourary Patrons of the award are the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, the Mayor of the City of Saskatoon, and the President of the University of Saskatchewan.
