The Algoma Art Society is extremely pleased to have been presented with the "2019 Community Recognition Award for the Visual Arts". 

Following photos taken of the executive and all attending Algoma Art Society members with the Acting Mayor, Art Society president Rutger Baker was presented with a framed Award in the City Council Chambers.

Significance of the Stone Cradle Award was explained and presented later by Chris Rous, Chair of the Cultural Advisory Board, in the form of a glass statue engraved at the base with the wording, "Algoma Art Society 2019 Community Recognition Award", to Rutger in the Russ Ramsay Reception Room. After presentation of the awards, members were treated to a delicious buffet along with the opportunity to socialize with each other and former recipients of the award.

During the evening Society members were also invited to display examples of their art work outside the Council Chambers as well as in the Russ Ramsay Room.

 
It was a very enjoyable and memorable evening for the Algoma Art Society!
