Arts Recognition Awards

Arts Recognition Awards

Each year for over 25 years, the Quinte Arts Council recognizes those individuals, artist groups or businesses who have made a difference to the arts in our community with our Arts Recognition Awards. Without exception, these individuals are making Quinte a destination for those craving a vibrant arts and culture scene.

Recipients are celebrated at The Mayor’s Luncheon for the Arts, which is traditionally held in the fall.

Celebrating our 2021 Recipients

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, we hosted a modified Mayor’s Luncheon for the Arts to celebrate these individuals and their achievements: an intimate, invite-only event for recipients, their nominator, their guests, and our platinum sponsors (McDougall Insurance and the City of Belleville) at Dinkel’s Restaurant in downtown Belleville.

Thank you to our sponsor Elexicon Energy, our gracious host Paul Dinkel of Paulo’s/Dinkel’s Restaurants and local artist Joanne Rich for designing the awards.
