Spring is the time to reflect on our recent past and set goals for the coming year.
From a program perspective, 2017-2018 was a smashing success! Led by the communitys' enthusiasm for our summer 10 x 10 show, our largest Annual Members'; show ever, and our eight-site Art in Public Places program, 761 artists participated in our exhibition programs; 1,248 students of all ages developed their talents in our art education program; 44,638 audience members enjoyed music, theater, arts festivals, and other programs supported by the Community Arts Grants we awarded in Saratoga, Fulton, and Montgomery Counties. Upstairs and down The Arts Center was a hive of community creativity, with performances, rehearsals, screenings, concerts, and meetings in The Dee Sarno Theater on 202 dates; the gallery open Mondays-Saturdays (and Sundays in July and August); and classes, lessons, workshops, and other activity in our studios.
With your support, and guided by our mission of ensuring that the arts are accessible to all, we'll build on last year's successes in 2018-2019. Please contribute what you can, and please also let us know what you'd like to see from your Saratoga Arts - we're open to your ideas, and we welcome your help in realizing them!

As a First Night performer for the past three years, Saratoga Arts has provided an opportunity for me to grow not only as a young musician who is able to share my passion with thousands throughout the night, but also as a person. – Seina Shirakura (Violinist)
I have been involved with Saratoga Arts for many years and am always impressed by the genuine enthusiasm of the staff, and the organization's fundamental emphasis on making art grounded and connected to the local community. - Cathy Hall (SA Member, Volunteer, Artist)
Thanks to scholarships offered through Saratoga Arts, both my daughters were able to attend [camps]. Since then, one of them has become an artist herself, and her own daughter has been able to attend theater camp on a scholarship…[Saratoga Arts] is a crucial part of the Saratoga community for families like mine. – F. Thomas (Community Member)
