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.
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.
