Awards celebrate arts and culture in Penticton

The Penticton Arts Council announced it is launching the inaugural Arts Awards.

The evening will be a celebration recognizing award winners for their outstanding achievement, contribution and support of arts and culture in Penticton and the surrounding area. The awards will also underline the importance of the arts in the area.

Categories include arts educator, dance, design, graphic arts, literary arts, media arts, music, supporter of the arts, theatre, visual arts and youth. A lifetime achievement award will be presented on the basis of overall contribution to the arts. This is not a nomination award. Individuals, groups, associations or businesses are eligible for the lifetime achievement award. The deadline for nominations is Jan. 24 with the presentation of awards on Feb. 27 at the Shatford Centre.
