Call for Artists for October!
The Cornwall Arts Collective and the Greater Cornwall Chamber of Commerce are inaugurating a monthly Art Walk in Cornwall. The last Art Walk in 2023 will be on the Sunday, October 15th from 4:00-7:00 P.M.
Artists/makers will display in front of businesses in Cornwall and Cornwall-on-Hudson. Cornwall Arts Collective will have a table on Bridge Street along with music and other artists if space permits.
The Cornwall Arts Collective (CAC) and Highlands Arts Alliance (HAA) are pleased to announce the planned merger of both organizations into the Cornwall-Highlands Arts Alliance (CHAA).
After much discussion among respective leadership it was agreed that combing resources, responsibilities, and talents will prove beneficial in continuing the mission of supporting the Arts in both the Town of Cornwall and Town of Highlands. Therefore, beginning July 1, 2023, CAC and HAA will enter into a "creative partnership," extending their respective benefits and opportunities to the members of both groups. Then, on January 1, 2024, the groups will officially merge into a single organization, CHAA.
Regardless of their separation by Storm King Mountain, the Cornwall and Highlands communities have always been interconnected. CAC and HAA already share a number of members and invite all other members to participate in their respective exhibitions and cultural events. It was only natural that both groups would eventually join together, unified in their shared mission to support the Arts, promote member artists, and help to enhance the quality of community life with the Arts. We look forward to what this partnership will bring to both communities in the future!
