Saratoga Arts’ Annual Soiree
Wednesday, November 13, 2019 • 5:30pm – 8:30pm
Longfellows Restaurant, 500 Union Avenue, Saratoga Springs
Since 2012, Saratoga Arts has recognized at our annual Soiree community arts leaders whose commitment to expanding the access to the arts for all and whose support for artist and arts organizations have helped shape the cultural environment of the entire region. We’ve been honored at our past events to celebrate the work of Mona Golub, James Kettlewell, Elaina Richardson, Ron & Michele Riggi, Stacie Mayette Barnes, Marie Glotzbach, Marcia White, and Dee Sarno.
Please join us this year, when we’ll honor Hudson Headwaters Health Network and Beverley Mastrianni.
Hudson Headwaters Health Network believes in the healing presence of art in our everyday lives and is committed to incorporating works from regional artists into the health care environment. There are currently 175 local works, either on loan or as part of Hudson Headwaters’ permanent collection, strategically placed for patients to enjoy in 19 health centers from northern Saratoga County to the Canadian border. Hudson Headwaters also partners with other local art organizations such as Saratoga Arts, The Strand Center for the Arts in Plattsburgh, The Hyde Museum and The World Awareness Children’s Museum in Glens Falls to bring rotating art shows to their health centers. Hudson Headwaters’ dedication to promoting arts in health is very much in keeping with Saratoga Arts’ own commitment to making the arts accessible while supporting artists and arts organizations in our greater region.
For over three decades, Artist and Arts Advocate Beverley Mastrianni has helped shape the arts and cultural organizations that enrich the lives of all in our region. Bev helped found Saratoga Arts and the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation; she Chaired the Urban Cultural Park Commission in Saratoga Springs when it renovated the 1915 Drink Hall into the Visitor Center, was Director of the George S. Bolster Photographic Collection at the Saratoga Springs History Museum, and has served on the Boards of the Brookside Museum in Ballston Spa, the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy, the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, and Saratoga Arts, and on the Tang Museum National Advisory Council, the President’s Council at Sage Colleges, and the Saratoga Springs Arts Commission. Bev’s artwork has been exhibited at the Tang and the Schick Gallery at Skidmore, the Albany Institute of History and Art, Adirondack Community College, the Southern Vermont Arts Center, Art Santa Fe, SeaFair in Miami, and is held in many private and corporate collections in North America and Europe.
The evening will include great music, light fare, cash bar, and a silent auction.
Help us honor these tremendous Arts Ambassadors and celebrate and support Saratoga Arts’ year-round work ensuring that the arts are available to all in our region!
