Dear Members and Supporters of the Ossining Arts Council,

We are in urgent need.

  • We have had to maintain the Ossining Arts Council Steamer Firehouse facility.
  • We must pay insurance.
  • We have no income from exhibit fees.
Please understand that we are a TOTALLY volunteer 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization. There are no paid positions.

Will you make a donation to help keep us going through these very difficult times?

If you have kept your membership current or recently renewed, thank you! If not, please consider renewing your membership for 2020-21.

Our mission:

  • 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 currently meet on Zoom 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 are most welcome.

We're still 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 (according to current health and safety guidelines) 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.

Did you know that you can make an impact when you shop for Black Friday deals - or any time? Simply shop at and AmazonSmile will donate to Ossining Arts Council at no cost to you.

Thank you for your support & have a happy and healthy holiday season!
