Our Mission

Our mission is to enrich our community through art classes, public art exhibits and to provide resources for local artists. We believe that art education is critical for developing creativity and thoughtfulness in our youth. We continue the tradition of plein air painting, and the appreciation of our local landscape which that practice engenders, by offering classes and our annual Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival which showcases professional plein air painters from around the country. Our gallery exhibits showcase our local artists and embrace contemporary art and the living culture of our region.
