Dear Friends of the Arts,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us for Orange County Arts Council’s Annual Gala, The Art Affair. This virtual speakeasy will be held on Thursday, October 29, 2020 from 6:00pm-8:00pm.

All proceeds from The Art Affair directly support programs and cultural events such as Hudson Valley Creative Impact, The Student Arts Showcase, Arts Outreach initiatives, and Community Arts Grants. We are only able to provide these programs and cultural events with your generosity.

We are thrilled to announce the 2020 honorees Cooper Boone, singer/songwriter/ clinical child psychologist/televised cook and owner of the award winning lifestyle store Foundry42, located in Port Jervis, NY; David Church, Orange County’s recent planning commissioner for nearly two decades; and E’lissa Jones, prolific musician, singer-songwriter, Warwick Valley High School Orchestra Director, music educator for nineteen years, and founder of Hudson Valley Ebony Strings. The honorees have been selected for their contribution to the arts and the difference they have made to the cultural life of our community.

Join us in tribute to our honorees and as a sponsor for this year’s gala. Please contact the Orange County Arts Council at 845-202-0140 or e-mail info@ocartscouncil.org for more information.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
