More than 250 enthusiastic community arts supporters will enjoy an evening of live music, dancing, auctions and raffles, complemented by culinary artistry and a selection of fine wine donated by Dr. Joel & Kira Spiro, beer from the Albany Pump Station and cider from Nine Pin Cider Works.

Help us celebrate art, artists and the creative spirit of our community as we present the Mona Ruth Brickman Memorial Artist of the Year Award of $1,000 to Tara Fracalossi and the Les Urbach Lifetime Achievement Award to Stuart Horn.

When you reserve your place among our highlighted sponsors, you help us to fulfill the ACG mission to promote and exhibit contemporary visual art by the region’s emerging and established artists, and to provide enjoyment to a diverse audience.This is our most important fundraising event of the year and a great opportunity to come out for a special evening while helping your community arts organization thrive. Last year’s gala was sold out, so reserve your tickets today! We are happy to offer two ticket levels this year.Recommended dress: Black and white, creative black-tie. While black-and-white attire is always classic and elegant, we’re encouraging fashion-forward, artistic, fun looks. Be bold!
