We’re Pleased to Announce Two OAAG Awards!

October 10th, 2013

The 2013 Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG) Awards were presented on September 27 at the University of Toronto Art Centre.  The Awards are annual, province-wide, juried awards of artistic merit and excellence. They recognize the new exhibitions, publications, programs and community partnerships that have been commissioned and produced by Ontario’s public art galleries over the previous year.

Our Senior Curator, Linda Jansma commented “The OAAG awards are particularly important as they represent the best in the work that Ontario art galleries are doing as reviewed by our peers. We are very pleased to have nominated Stuart Reid for the writing award and congratulate him on being chosen as the winning recipient.”

We’re thrilled to announce that we were named as partners in two exhibitions that won Curatorial Writing Awards:
