Attendance was up and the mood was merry as PAC opened their 50th year of exhibits and services to artists and their audience here in Putnam County this past weekend. The show is ongoing through March 29th with gallery hours Tues-Fri 11-3 and Sunday 1-4pm.

The annual Members meeting began at 3pm with a review of 2012 and unveiling plans for a year of activities in 2013, many of which will take place at PAC’s home, the Belle Levine Art Center (521 Kennicut Hill Rd., Mahopac). As the public meeting drew to a close at 4pm, many more of the participating artists, family and friends arrived for a reception to meet the artists, and enjoy the artwork.

Our Annual Members exhibit is a benefit of membership and This year’s 2013 show features an incredible collection of paintings, drawings, assemblage, photography, pottery, sculpture and more from 91 artists. Most works are for sale and reasonably priced, making for a lot of very “affordable ART”.

The Putnam Arts Council provides support services to artists and arts organizations and offers classes, exhibits, concerts, special events and more throughout the year. Please visit putnamartscouncil.com for latest updates take advantage of one or more of the special events and exhibits scheduled here in your own backyard, soon.

PAC’s programs and services are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and NY State Legislature. Public support is also provided by Putnam County Government.  Additional revenue is generated by PAC through membership, educational and creative programs, fund raising efforts and through donations.
