GCCA is now in its 41st year of service! In just a few short months we will be celebrating Spring at the 29th Annual Beaux Arts Ball at Hunter Mountain. Plan to join us on Saturday, April 1, 2017 (no fooling) for what has been billed “THE party of the year!”
Please use the dropdown menu to choose your ticket level.
This year, as part of the festivities, we cover Greene County with our Distinguished Service Awards.
Starting on the Mountaintop, we honor Ritamary Montano-Vining, art teacher extraordinaire and department Director at the Hunter-Tannersville MS/HS for 25 years, Art Explorers Education Director at Sugar Maples Center for Arts In Education and student advocate for all things good.
Moving down the mountain to Catskill we honor Bob Hoven of Robert Hoven, Inc, an internationally acclaimed interior designer who has generously donated his expertise in our County seat as Chair of the Friends of Beattie-Powers Place for twelve years, an active partner in Cultivate Catskill, a pro-bono consultant to our County Courthouse make-over, and a contributor to many of our businesses and non-profits for façade and interior designs.
And wrapping it all up, we honor Galen Joseph-Hunter, Executive Director of Wave Farm. Founded 20 years ago in Brooklyn, as free103point9, they expanded their operations to Greene County in 2005. Wave Farm is sited on 30-acres in Acra and is home to an international transmission art residency program, research library, installation park, and broadcast studio. Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM went on air in 2011 and brings creative, community, hands-on radio to our airwaves. Wave Farm is also a NYS Council on the Arts regrant partner for electronic media and film state-wide.
GCCA is delighted to honor these three outstanding individuals who have contributed so much to our creative economy.
The Beaux Arts Ball is the Arts Council’s primary fund raising event, supporting the many diverse and varied programs we provide throughout the year. We continually strive to keep the arts alive and meaningful in our communities as well as draw attention to the important contribution of the arts in Greene County. We are proud of our accomplishments over the past 41 years!
