The OAAG Awards are a signature program and event produced by OAAG and open to all OAAG Members. These are province-wide, juried art gallery awards of artistic merit and excellence in exhibitions, publications, programs, and community partnerships produced by Ontario's art galleries. The Awards are presented in eleven major categories: Exhibition, Curatorial and Art Writing, Public Program, Education, Art Publication, Design, Partnership, Lifetime Achievement, Colleague, Volunteer, and our new Changemaker BIPOC Award! The OAAG Awards acknowledges both institutions and individuals. Their breadth and depth of recognition are unparalleled among other arts service organizations.
