Irene Whittome

Congratulations to Irene Whittome, who has been named an Officer of the Order of Canada by the Governor-General.

A distinguished multi-media artist, Whittom’s engravings can be found in private and public collections around the world. She has been a highly regarded professor of the visual arts in Concordia’s Faculty of Fine Arts since 1974. Over the years, she channelled a great deal of energy into the creation of the innovative Open Media program, which attracts students from across Canada.

The Order of Canada recognizes outstanding achievement and service. There are three levels of membership, companion, officer and member.
