2017 Wood Buffalo Excellence in Arts Awards
On Saturday October 21, 2017, Arts Council Wood Buffalo hosted the Midnight Speakeasy, inspired by the 1920s prohibition era. The Awards, also known as the Buffys, are designed to showcase the amazingly vibrant talent present in our community, to recognize and thank our local artists, as well as to provide paid performance and exhibit opportunities to artists in our region. There is an abundance of incredible artists that many are not even aware of, and the Buffys present an entertaining platform to highlight the diversity and depth of the Wood Buffalo arts community. The 2017 Excellence in Arts Awards was an exceptional display of the vibrancy of the arts scene in Wood Buffalo, beautifully presented and entertaining.
