Message from the Prime Minister of Canada on Ontario Association of Art Galleries Awards
Posted On December 1, 2020
It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone to the 43rd Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG) Awards.
Since its establishment, the OAAG has served as an essential voice for public art galleries in Ontario, while helping to maintain a high standard in the care and presentation of art. During this difficult period for our country, it is important that we recognize and appreciate the unique role that art plays in our lives. Art is a powerful tool that inspires people, shapes ideas, and provides individuals with an avenue to express themselves. To everyone receiving awards today, congratulations on your wonderful and well-deserved accomplishment.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made planning and hosting events like this especially difficult, and I would like to thank the dedicated organizers at OAAG for making this awards ceremony possible.
Please accept my best wishes for a memorable event!
