THURSDAY, April 18, 2024: Westchester Sketchers at Arts Westchester, White Plains

For more than 50 years, ArtsWestchester has been the community’s connection to the arts.  Founded in 1965, it is the largest, private, not-for-profit arts council in New York State.  Its mission is to provide leadership, vision, and support, to ensure the availability, accessibility, and diversity of the arts.  

In 1998, ArtsWestchester purchased the nine-story neo-classical bank building at 31 Mamaroneck Avenue which has since been transformed into a multi-use resource for artists, cultural organizations, and the community.  A two-story gallery is located on the first floor of ArtsWestchester’s historic building on Mamaroneck Avenue.

The current Gallery exhibit (on view April 14 - May 28) is called "Open Call, Exhibition" and features 22 artists that represent the breadth of and diversity of the thriving art scene in Westchester County.  One such artist is Elizabeth Diaz who has been awarded ArtsWestchester’s 2024 Larry Salley Photography Award.
