HALL OF FAME The Art Gallery of Windsor (401 Riverside Drive West; AGW.ca) brought home three new awards from the 38th annual ceremony of the Ontario Association of Art Galleries in late November 2015. This event marks the third consecutive year that the AGW has garnered awards from this important peer-recognized association and it is a gallery first in history to have three back-to-back years of recognition. The AGW was the recipient of “Colleague of the Year,” “Exhibition of the Year (under $10K)” and “Art Publication of the Year.” Congratulations are extended to Nicole McCabe, Curatorial Coordinator and longtime AGW employee who began her career with the Gallery in 1992 in security and has served the curatorial goals of the AGW under four directors and many curators. Congratulations are also extended to artists Deirdre Logue and Allyson Mitchell for their Feminist Art Gallery exhibition, 

“We Won’t Compete” and to Exhibition Curator Srimoyee Mitra for her leadership of the exhibition and excellence in curatorial programming. “Art Publication of the Year”  was won by Kelly Mark: “Everything Is Interesting,” a 256-page hard cover book  co-published with Cambridge Galleries, Mount St. Vincent University Art Gallery, Kenderdine Art Gallery, and the Art Gallery of Windsor. In November 2015 Historic Downtown Amherstburg received the “People’s Choice Award” for “Great Neighbourhood” according to The Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP; GreatPlacesInCanada.ca) “5th Annual Great Places in Canada Contest.” This win is a reflection of the well-kept residential homes, businesses, historic sites, heritage sites and festivals. It is also complements Amherstburg’s other successful acknowledgements; “Municipality of the Year” from Festival and Events Ontario, “Five Bloom Rating” from Communities in Bloom 2015 with special recognition in Floral Display, and Heritage and Statistics Canada’s “Safest Community in Canada.” Great Places in Canada was created to celebrate and share those places which make one’s community unique and to recognize the vital work of our country’s professional planners.
