Ewing Arts Awards 2017

Nominations are Open!

The Keene Sentinel and Arts Alive! have again partnered to celebrate the diversity and excellence of artists in the Monadnock region. 

The mission of the event is to bring more focus and attention to the myriad artists in this region, said Keene Sentinel President Terrence Williams. Last year, 18 visual and performing artists were honored. The success of the event resulted in making it an annual occurrence, he said. “We could not have hoped for a better outcome,” he said referring to last year’s ceremony and magazine. “It was an honor to showcase the treasures of this region’s creative community.”

“It is an honor to bring community awareness and appreciation to the thriving arts community nestled in the villages and towns around Mount Monadnock,” said Jessica Gelter, executive director for Arts Alive! “It’s a great way to celebrate the culture, creativity and inspiration that flourishes in this region. The Ewing Awards offer an opportunity for hometown recognition to these world-class artists.”

The awards seek to recognize excellence in the visual and performing arts and to acknowledge how these artists give back to their communities and their professions. Winners will be profiled in a special glossy magazine that will be published in July. The Sentinel and Arts Alive! will also host a reception for the artists at Redfern Arts Center Recital Hall on the campus of Keene State College with winners talents being showcased on the stage and on the walls throughout the space.
