Welcome Charlotte Wilson-Hammond as a Talent Trust Lifetime Honorary Director


Today, we acknowledge Charlotte Wilson-Hammond 
and her outstanding contribution to the Talent Trust.

Since moving to Nova Scotia in 1971 as an emerging visual artist, CharlotteWilson-Hammond has been an incredible support and advocated for the arts, both provincially and nationally.  She is a founding member of Visual ArtsNova Scotia, Eye Level Gallery and the Coalition For Arts and Culture.  

Charlotte has served on the Board of Governors of NSCAD University, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Cultural Federations of Nova Scotia, the Canadian Conference of the Arts, and Canadian Artists Representation (CARFAC). 

She also served on the Nova Scotia Talent Trust Board of Directors for over 20 years.  During this time, she served as Chair for several years and served on every committee at one time or another.  Charlotte's enthusiasm, energy, and passion for the arts have made a lasting impact on the Talent Trust for years to come.

In 2004 Charlotte won the Portia White Award in honour of her outstanding artistry.  Charlotte used this award to establish the The Charlotte Wilson Hammond/Visual Arts Nova Scotia Award. This $1000 annual award is given to an emerging visual artist who shows exceptional commitment and potential each year.  This award has supported 17 emerging artists so far, with the latest recipient being Charles Bourne in 2021. 

It has been an absolute pleasure and honour to have had Charlotte serve on our Board of Directors for so many years.  We cannot express our gratitude enough for her commitment and dedication to the Talent Trust.  We look forward to seeing Charlotte at future events as our newest Honorary Lifetime Member.

Thank you, Charlotte!
