Let me start by saying that Kentucky Derby enthusiasm is alive and well in the Poconos! Many thanks to everyone who contributed to our very successful Spring for the Arts event…from the beautiful flowers, to the wonderful food, to the exemplary entertainment, and most importantly to all of you who showed a willingness to embrace the NEW online auction. Thanks to your spirit of generosity and sense of adventure, a great evening was enjoyed by all.
Right on the heels of the gala, came the annual Members’ Exhibition. The show is beautiful and exemplifies the outstanding talent that exists right in our own Pocono region. It was an honor to meet many of our members at the reception. Thank you to John McAllister who spent hours hanging and arranging the work – it is most impressive.
I am looking forward to the summer months which is the beginning of festival season starting in July with the brand new Downtown Stroudsburg Arts Festival to be held on July 7th and soon followed by the Festival of Wood and the Pocono State Craft Festival in August.
What a whirlwind it’s been, I’m energized every day by the passion and generosity of our Pocono Arts Community.
