Senior Wins Ruth & James Ewing Art Award

Congratulations to senior Jaclyn Clark who is the recipient of a Ruth & James Ewing Art Award.

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 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.
