Hello to All Our members and Friends!
PUTNAM ARTS COUNCIL PRESENTS TWO EXHIBITS
at Belle Levine Art Center, Mahopac
The Putnam Arts Council invites you to attend our next two exhibits as we celebrate 50 years of making art more accessible here in our own backyard.
These exhibits begin in April with Emerging Artists, featuring the work of students from Brewster, Haldane and Mahopac high schools, chosen by their art teachers for exhibit, and then juried for awards by working artist/instructors from PAC. The second show opens in June, Art: A Lifelong Journey, bringing focus and attention to seasoned, charming artists whose passion to create is something to respect, admire and enjoy. This show is remarkable in that some have been working for many years and others are newly come to the art world. This year, awards will be selected by James B. Sparks.
We have offered these exhibits for decades bringing the gallery experience to hundreds of folks and are delighted that both shows continue to attract interest and enthusiasm for the artists and from our community, proving that art truly has no limits, especially not age or experience.
ART: A Lifelong Journey invites established and emerging working artists 75 and over to bring two pieces of original fine art, two and/or three-dimensional, created in the past 5 years and not previously exhibited with PAC, for inclusion in this exhibit. The opening reception takes place Sunday, June 2, 2-4pm in our gallery space, at the Belle Levine Art Center, 521 Kennicut Hill Rd. in Mahopac. Exhibiting artists and interested individuals should visit our comprehensive website at putnamartscouncil.com for the exhibit prospectus for details about the exhibit including drop off dates and entry fees. The prospectus is also available by mail by calling us at our office at 845.803.8622 during business hours, Tues-Fri from 10-4.
In addition to support from Putnam County government, we recognize Kent residents Mr. & Mrs. E. Nobles Lowe, founders and supporters of our Art: A Lifelong Journey celebration, as well as Mrs. Nancy Dill of Brewster and Mahopac National Bank, our corporate sponsor for both of these exhibits.
