R.A.V.E. Awards

Tonight a community that gave me so much honoured me with an award for practicing artist at the third annual R.A.V.E. Awards
(Recognizing Arts Vaughan Excellence) held at City Hall.
Established in 2008, the R.A.V.E. Awards formally recognize the contributions made by individuals, businesses
and organizations to the visual, performing and literary arts in Vaughan.

Within each art discipline, nominations were received in one of the following four categories:
patron of the arts, art educator/mentor, practicing artist, and rising star.
All nominations were reviewed by a panel of professionals representing the three disciplines of visual arts, performing arts and literary arts.

This year’s winners in each category are as follows:

Visual arts discipline:

Renuka De Silva, art educator/mentor
Farhad Nargol-O’Neill, practicing artist
Isabella Suppa, rising star
