Ewing Award Winners to Perform at the Jaffrey Civic Center
In this the season of the annual Ewing awards, the Jaffrey Civic Center is excited to announce that it will be hosting an evening of performers comprised of honorees from past years. The event will take place on June 16th at 6PM, in the center?s Auditorium Gallery.
For over a decade, awards have been given to artists of all media and styles in the Monadnock region. Ruth and James Ewing, the Keene Sentinel, and Arts Alive! have sponsored this annual recognition of the many artists working in this aesthetically rich and varied geographic area. The concert will take place in conjunction with the ongoing art exhibition which showcases previous winners in the visual arts realm. The program will include authors Ernie Hebert and Brinda Charry, a film clip by Lawrence Siegel, and a musical performance by Randy Miller, Dr. José Manuel Lezcano, Rafael Popper-Keizer, Jessica Gelter, and Virginia Eskin.
Last year, the Jaffrey Civic Center was also awarded one of the Ewing Awards for being an Arts Presenter under the new, dynamic leadership of director Rebecca Fredrickson. The Center is honored to be able to showcase the talent of other Ewing award winners with the visual arts exhibit and concert. The concert is free and open to the public, however a $10 donation to the Civic Center is suggested. The Jaffrey Civic Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit cultural facility founded in 1966. The Center?s mission is to provide and sustain a public venue where citizens and residents of the Monadnock region, as well as visitors to the area, can pursue artistic, educational, and civic activities. The Center?s goal is to contribute to the cultural enrichment and enlightenment of the community. The Center does not charge an admission fee, and all art shows and receptions are free and open to the public.
