continued The Arts Center is also a collaborator with Troy’s monthly Troy Night Out, scheduled for the last Friday of the month from 5 to 9 p.m., and offers exhibit openings, performances and hands-on art activities throughout the evening.
On April 27 to 28, the center will host its first Fine Arts and Crafts Festival, showcasing original works and will feature the northeast’s top artists and craftspeople. The center’s annual fundraiser Gala is on May 15, and typically attracts more than 500 pieces of local artists’ work. This year, the center will present cash awards to two local artists, an established artist and an emerging one.
The Arts Center for the Capital Region, located at 265 River St. in Troy, is open seven days a week. For more information on hours, classes, exhibits, performances and submitting for The (Re)Imagining Troy Project, visit www.artscenteronline.org.
