The Putnam Arts Council, Mahopac, NY invites the public to visit our first 2021 exhibition featuring 72 artworks in a virtual show on our website www.putnamartscouncil.com, through April 18, 2021. Participating in this exhibit is a benefit of membership and showcases the vast breadth of media and subject matter created by many of the Putnam Arts Council’s members.
Most of the works are for sale and all are reasonably priced and the show is, of course, available 24/7.
We are also announcing our return to a monthly Featured Artist Series, also a benefit of membership. Artists will be selected to be featured on our website (permanently), in our vestibule (for three months) and in time appropriate e-blasts.
We hope you will visit our virtual exhibition and stop in and see the terrific collages created by our current Featured Artist, Joan Gillman Smith of Brewster.
Spring classes will begin late April and will offer art classes and workshops for adults, teens and pre-teens. We are in the midst of planning our summer art program
For children 6-12, which will be offered the month of August.
The Putnam Arts Council is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization housed in the Belle Levine Art Center, a renovated 1800’s barn, once the home of cartoonist Bud Fisher, creator of Mutt and Jeff. The Council received its charter from the NYS Department of Education for museum and educational purposes and has been serving artists and the community since its inception. The Council’s programs are supported, in part, with public funds from Putnam County and with public funds received through the NYS Council on the Arts, a State Agency. All of our programs are open to the public and admission to our gallery is always free of charge.
We can be reached during business hours, Tuesday – Friday from 12:30-5:30 and evenings or weekends by appointment, at 845.803.8622 or email us 24/7 to
