Hosted by the Arts Council of Rockland (ACOR) an organization established in the 1970s to advance the arts, culture and role of artists in the community, the 2022 Art Awards will take place at the Hilton Pearl River on June 1. The Awards honor individual artists, art organizations, art teachers and supporters of the arts.
At this year’s Art Awards, Jeffrey Friedberg, Diana Green and Bert Hughes will be honored and awards will be given out in the following categories: Arts Educator, Arts Leadership/Organization, Literary Artist, Performing Arts and Visual Artist. Event attendees will be treated to musical performances by guitarist and ACOR board member, Paul Speziale; faculty and students of Bridgemusik, led by Tanya and Krystof Witek; and Pearl River High School freshman and Rockland Conservatory of Music student Brendan McGillick.
To help raise funds to support the programs offered by ACOR, including professional development, marketing resources, grant opportunities, mentorship scholarships and networking, the event will also feature a virtual auction. This year’s auction features items and gift certificates from local businesses as well as original art from local artists.
Fox Pest Control’s sponsorship of the 2022 Art Awards will be used to ensure this year is another successful event. We look forward to seeing who this year’s winners and seeing the continuation of keeping arts vibrant in the community.
