For 53 years, the Pembroke Arts Festival has been recognizing the talent and dedication of local artists

Pembroke Arts Festival Awards and Recognitions


The Pembroke Arts Festival recognizes area artists who have achieved high technical, creative, and innovative levels of their craft.  Awards are divided into two types: named awards are given in recognition of a specific theme or element, while media-specific awards are given to exceptional pieces within a specific media.

Jurors are professional artists who look at technical ability, craftsmanship, originality, creativity and artistic vision.

All of the awards given by the Pembroke Arts Festival are sponsored by individuals, families, or local businesses.  Sponsoring an award in someone's name can be a wonderful and unique gift.  If you are interested in sponsoring an award, please contact Christine Sullivan.
