The Art world has sadly lost another great champion. On December 2nd, M. Joan Chalmers, C.C., O.ONT., LLD (HON) [pictured right] died. Joan was a huge benefactor of the Craft world with her support of organizations such as Craft Ontario (formerly the Ontario Crafts Council) and the Ontario Arts Council, just to name a few. She gave many craftspeople support and helped careers to flourish in the difficult Canadian climate. Sitting to the left of Joan is Jean Johnson C.M., who was another major advocator and force to be reckoned with in her support and promotion of the decorative arts. She sadly died May 27, 2014. Both of these women will be hard to replace and are sorely missed and remembered with deep affection.
