The Antoinette (Toni) Stevens Awards
Toni Stevens, a member of SCA from 1988 until her passing a decade later, was an acrylic painter whose brightly coloured paintings are full of energy and joie de vivre, reflecting her personality.
In 1999, to celebrate Toni’s life as an artist, the Antoinette (Toni) Stevens Program of awards was created by Bill Stevens, Toni’s husband. The bequest greatly assists the SCA and continues Toni’s vibrant legacy. After Bill’s passing in 2005, he provided for the continuation of these awards, in honour of his wife.
Two awards are presented each year:
- The Best Painting in the Show
- $1,000 accompanied by a SCA bronze medal and certificate
- The Best Painting in Acrylic in the Show - $500
The bequest also provides $250 each year (matched by an equal amount from SCA) for young art students in need.
