About the Ewing Arts Awards 2016

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, 15 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.”

The awards, he said, 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 July 22. The evening prior, July 21, will feature a reception for the artists at Redfern Arts Center Recital Hall on the campus of Keene State College.
