Ela Moll Scholarship Award - for Graduating High School Students
Annually, Gallery Stratford awards a scholarship to Perth and Huron County high school students who go on to study visual arts after high school. The Ela Moll Scholarship Award was founded by members of the Stratford Community and the Stratford Art Association to commemorate the death of Ela Moll (1950-1969), and to ensure that Stratford and area youth will continue to be encouraged in the Arts.
Ela Moll was a promising young Stratford artist, who was killed in an accident. A prolific artist from a very early age, he was rarely idle and produced hundreds of art works, including ink, etchings, oils/acrylic, silk screens, and sculpture. Moll displayed an extraordinary imagination and a great creative ability, manifested not only in his own work but his leadership to the young people of Stratford. His art works showed an exciting promise that would fulfill an outstanding potential.
