Bernard Aime Poulin - Awarded

Bernard Poulin, the noted Canadian artist and long time friend and supporter of UKCPS, has been granted international recognition by the award of the "Chevalier de l'Ordre de la Pleiade" (translated as: Knight of the Pleiade) from 21 March 2011, and in recognition of his remarkable contribution to Canada's cultural reputation.

The Order of the Pleiade was established in 1976 by the 'Parliamentary Assembly of Francophonie', an institution representing over 40 French-speaking countries and regions throughout the world. The award is made for prominant contributions to the Assembly's ideals of development, co-operation, and friendship.
Bernard, amongst other things, is a wonderful portrait artist, and I recommend a visit to his website; www.poulinstudios.com
