Rockland Center for the Arts celebrates the vision of its creative students in a Members’ Exhibition, Jan. 15 – Feb. 5. Artwork will include pottery, glass beads, drawing, painting and sculpture from over 180 members.
Early founders, Rockland residents and patrons – Helen Hayes, Henry Varnum Poor, Aaron Copland, Paulette Goddard and Burgess Meredith, wanted to provide a meeting ground for county artists and residents eager to enjoy their work and learn from their skills. Their goal was to present high quality arts that reflect the cultural diversity of the community; education in the fine and applied arts through it’s School for the Arts under teachers of a caliber seldom available outside of New York City.”
This month you have the opportunity to see the inspiration of these teachers as well as the amazing emerging and steady talent in RoCA and our county. The Center has educated and nurtured generations of artists, from world-class professionals to emerging talents.
Seventy years later, RoCA is very fortunate to be continuing the legacy of our founders. The exceptional members here actively create in the Hudson Valley and the U.S. “The Members Show” exhibit will be on view January 15 through Feb 5, 2017. An opening reception will be held January 15, 1 – 4 p.m.
