Artist Appreciation Award HERE

The River’s Edge Arts Alliance is seeking submissions for the yearly recipient of the Artist Appreciation Award. We are looking to honor a local individual or organization who has made a substantial contribution to enriching lives and creating community through the arts. This person, business or organization chosen should be someone who has integrity in the community, is knowledgeable in his/her art field, has contributed to the artistic lives of many people and who has contributed to our community in general through his/her artistic work with the people of the greater Hudson area.


This event is sponsored in part by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.


Artist Appreciation Award Recipients

The Artist Appreciation Award recognizes those who have dedicated themselves to the cultural enrichment of our community. These individuals and organizations are nominated by members of the community and chosen by the River’s Edge Arts Alliance Board of Directors.

Our appreciation of these recipients comes with a sincere thank you to those serving the River’s Edge Arts Alliance mission “to enrich lives and create community through the arts.” There are many who dedicate countless uncompensated hours of time and energy to uphold the intelligence, creativity, talent, beauty and cultural enrichment of our community. We think they deserve to be honored for their complete dedication to the arts.
