The OAAG Awards are a signature program and event produced by OAAG and open to all OAAG Members. These are province-wide, juried art gallerry awards of artistic merit and excellence in exhibitions, publications, programs, and community partnerships produced by Ontario's art galleries. The Awards are presented in ten major categories: Exhibition, Curatorial and Art Writing, Public Program, Education, Art Publication, Design, Partnership, Lifetime Achievement, Colleague and Volunteer. The OAAG Awards acknowledges both institutions and individuals. Their breadth and depth of recognition are unparalleled among other arts service organizations. This year we have received an astonishing 177 nominations from 34 galleries and art institutions!

OAAG is the leading and only arts service organization serving Ontario’s public art galleries for 48 years. OAAG’s membership is diverse, and spans from all regions across the province. We serve over 270 public art galleries, museums, artist-run centres, and arts professionals. OAAG is committed to the long-term sustainability of the visual art sector by providing leadership, responding to changing drivers, and delivering value through progressive forums and new technology.

This year is the 41st edition of the Awards program, and it will be a celebration for the ages.
