Another Prince Rupert artist has been recognized for her work by the BC Achievement Foundation.

Linda Bob, a Tahltan-Tlingit artist based in Prince Rupert, was announced as one of five recipients of the 2015 BC Creative Achievement Awards for First Nations’ Art in late October.

“The work of Tahltan-Tlingit artist Linda Bob encompasses ceremonial regalia and beadwork. Acknowledging that her history and culture is at the heart of her work, Linda has a deep passion to merge Tahltan and Tlingit traditions with contemporary style,” read the citation.

“While guided and inspired by traditional concepts, Linda moves outside Tahltan motifs into more fluid forms found in other Pacific Northwest traditions. Linda Bob’s work can be found in the National Museum of the American Indian, the Royal Ontario Museum, and has been exhibited at the Museum of Anthropology and the Spirit Wrestler Gallery.”

Bob was one of three Northwest recipients, with other winners including Gitxsan artists Ya-Ya Heit and Arlene Ness of Kispiox and Hazelton, respectively.

The awards will be presented to the recipients later this fall during a ceremony in Vancouver.
