A number of awards have been handed out throughout the Arts Awards Waterloo Area occasion to current awards like Rising Artist, Lifetime Achievement and Philanthropist Artist.
This on-line occasion on Nov. 27 noticed the artwork neighborhood, followers and supporters collect in a brand new manner, consistent with pandemic restrictions.
“It has been an uncommon yr for the humanities,” mentioned Pam Patel, Chair of the Waterloo Area Arts Awards in a launch.”We’re conscious of the numerous challenges that the COVID pandemic has had within the lives of native artists and upon the humanities and tradition communities. Because of this, it’s an especially necessary yr to honour the humanities.”

- Cathy Ross, Pam Patel, Gary Kirkham, Crystal Mowry, Glodeane Brown, Erin Bow, and Alysha Brilla for the Arts Award
- Behnaz Fatemi and Ioana Dragomir for an Rising Artist Award, Judith Stephens for the Artwork Philanthropist Award
