For the third consecutive year, the Boghossian Foundation, an organization established to support international educational, urban, artistic and cultural projects, has awarded three prizes to young Lebanese artists and designers. In a ceremony held at Beirut Exhibition Center Saturday, organizers announced that this year's prize winners were visual artist Chafa Ghaddar, fashion designer Nour Hage and calligrapher Carla Salem. Carla Salem studied art in Japan, and currently lives and works in Beirut, where she also lectures in the American University of Beirut's art and design department.Like Ghaddar and Hage, she places great emphasis on her materials, producing her own paper from organic components using a technique influenced by the way paper is produced in northern Japan.
