We are delighted that our four award winners represent accomplishments in a broad range of the arts, reflecting our organization’s commitment to support all kinds of Art in the Everyday. We are so proud of the young artists of Hopewell Valley. Their performances and exhibits and sharing of their talents are part of what makes Hopewell Valley an art-rich community.  Recognizing young artists with these scholarships is one of the most awesome things we do!”

This year’s recipients are:

  • Reinah Bauer, who will continue her involvement with instrumental music and voice performance in the Rutgers University Honors Program;
