Celebrate the Arts! Create an Award!

Now going into our 102nd anniversary season, we invite you to create an award, recognizing exceptional talent. These awards are presented during opening receptions for each of our major exhibitions.

It’s a great honor for NSAA artists to receive an award at one of our North Shore Arts Association Exhibitions. Made possible by contributions from individuals and organizations throughout the state of Massachusetts and beyond, these awards have been created to recognize the achievements of our renowned artists. Many are memorial awards honoring a family member or friend who shared a special love of the arts. Some are given for excellence in a specific medium or discipline, others are open to all media.

NSAA’s elected artist member jury selects the most deserving artwork and our Donors have the option to attend the awards ceremony and reception to present the award themselves or to have our NSAA President of the Board of Trustees present the award. You will be welcomed and made to feel a vital part of our artistic family!
