Happy Holidays from all of us at the Hopewell Valley Arts Council!

We’re so grateful for you — our art-loving supporters and neighbors — for “celebrating art in the everyday” with us. As we reflect on this warm, wonderful, and artistic community this holiday season, we are inspired.

Looking to 2018, we’re excited about two significant new programs we have coming up! We’re launching an Artists Guild to support both established and emerging artists, with a forum for fellowship, learning, and idea sharing. Also in the new year, we’ll be upcycling wood from blighted ash trees in a series of commemoration events and initiatives we’re calling “Out of the Ashes.”

Our warmest wishes for an inspired and joyful holiday season!


This season of giving, we hope you will consider supporting the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, enabling us to foster a creative and inspired community. To make a donation, please visit our Annual Appeal page.
