LOUDONVILLE – The Colonie Art League, the Friends of Pruyn House and the Town of Colonie are co-sponsoring an art exhibit at Pruyn House, from April 4 through April 29.
This is a juried show and will feature approximately 60 selected paintings by members of the Colonie Art League. The Pruyn House will be open to the public Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and there is no admission fee.
The Colonie Art League was founded in 1974 by a group of Capital District artists to foster the advancement of visual arts in the area. Currently, the league has a membership of approximately 200 artists working in a wide variety of two-dimensional media. A major purpose of the league is to increase public awareness of original art that is being produced in the Capital District by arranging exhibits in public places. The league also provides a forum for artists to interact and exchange ideas and materials and promotes art as a career for area high school students.
The Friends of Pruyn House is a not-for-profit membership group which manages the Pruyn House Complex, the Cultural Center owned by the Town of Colonie.
