We, the Ossining Arts Council (OAC), are a group of volunteers whose mission is:
To promote and showcase the talent of all artists, whether professional or amateur
To unite diverse talent across other arts-based organizations through collaborative programs
To build awareness and inspire passion for the arts within our community
In adopting this mission, we hope to demonstrate that art is an important, vital and affirming force - both in the life of a community and in the life of each individual it touches.
We welcome everyone interested in supporting the local arts scene - artists and non-artists alike!
We're based at The Steamer Firehouse Gallery at 117 Main Street, Ossining. We meet here the second Wednesday each month to discuss and plan forthcoming OAC activity - this includes member art exhibitions, fundraisers and arts-based community events. If you would like to attend a meeting, you'd be most welcome.
Please contact Mark Sarazen firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
We're here to encourage participation in - and love of - the arts, in all their forms. We help our artist members promote their work through various channels. These include OAC-hosted events, use of our physical Gallery Space in the Steamer Firehouse and a dedicated artist profile and showcase through our Online Galleries.
In addition, our member artists become part of a thriving artistic community here in Ossining. We offer a social and creative hub, where like-minded people can meet, share ideas and foster new projects and collaborations.
