The Ewing Arts Awards are named in honor of Ruth and James Ewing, who made many contributions to the local arts community through their stewardship of The Keene Sentinel and through personal philanthropy.
The Keene Sentinel and Arts Alive! have joined to present the fifth annual Ewing Arts Awards. These awards will be made to local artists who, through the quality of their work, demonstrate excellence and make important statements as artists.
The awards are made in 10 categories:
• Performing Arts
• 2D Visual Arts
• 3D Visual Arts
• Literary Arts
• Interdisciplinary Arts
• Folk and Traditional Arts
• Presenter of the Arts
• Student Award
• Lifetime Achievement
• Excellence in Community Engagement
Winners are selected by a committee of local arts experts assembled by Arts Alive!, some of whom
include past winners. These awards are subjective and not meant to reflect “the best” work done in this
region, but rather to highlight excellence. An emphasis is also made on how an artist gives back to his
or her profession or community.
