Tags: Gallery News
On behalf of our staff, Board of Directors, Gala Committee, and all members of our community, we graciously invite you to participate as a member of the Honorary Committee to ACG’s Through the Decades Gala. By joining the Honorary Committee, you are at the forefront of the regional arts movement in supporting Albany Center Gallery to continue to bring “more art everywhere, together!”
This year's annual Gala fundraiser will take place in-person at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 19, 2022 at the Kenmore Ballroom in Downtown Albany. The theme is Through the Decades, a celebration of all the decades ACG has been a part of (70s, 80s, 90s, etc.) as we continue to commemorate our 45th Anniversary and full history with art and community.
For 45 years, ACG has been promoting and exhibiting art produced by the region’s emerging and established artists as well as engaging, enriching, and inspiring the community to appreciate the importance of art. Thousands of the area’s finest contemporary artists have exhibited at Albany Center Gallery, and many of the artists gain national and international recognition afterwards. Our reach extends beyond the walls of the Gallery, working with the community through public art projects and art programming. Through these pursuits, the Gallery consistently reaches over 50,000 individuals annually.
To ensure your name appears as an Honorary Committee member on gala promotional materials, please complete and return THIS Response Form no later than October 1. The deadline for recognition in the program book is October 22. Honorary Committee members will also be recognized on ACG’s website and event social media promotion.
