Your contribution makes so much possible. The HV Arts Council has been expanding the breadth of our art initiatives, partnerships, and programs to support local arts and artists. We’re engaging with the community to celebrate “art in the everyday” in the greater Hopewell Valley and creating opportunities for artists and art enthusiasts. We know that art is part of what makes Hopewell Valley the warm, wonderful, and imaginative community that it is.

We’re bringing you events including the annual Amazing Pumpkin Carve, the first member’s art show, artistic recycling at Pennington Day, ice sculpture display at the Pennington Holiday Walk, plus movie screenings, art workshops, and so much more. Last year, HV Arts Council also featured local artists at our “artist tent” at the Pennington Farmers Market, and co-sponsored four art exhibits and artist receptions at the Investors Bank Art & Healing Gallery at Capital Health-Hopewell.

But we need your help.

This year, we are embarking on several new projects including ArtConnect: Creating Opportunities for Artists, a program to support both established and emerging artists by creating a forum for fellowship, learning, and idea sharing, while providing opportunities to showcase their talents in community.
