An exhibition of the photographs of Bard student Pranay Panday 
November 20-22, 2016

We’re thrilled to report that this show successfully raised hundreds of dollars to benefit Child to Child Nepal Project, which is one of the Bard TLS (Trustee Leader Scholar) initiatives led by students. The program facilitates meeting  basic needs in schools in Nepal that Bard students are going to be volunteering in over the summer break.

RHCAN was happy to be able to strengthen our ties with the BARD Community by supporting this event.

New & exciting changes at RHCAN…

Things are changing shape at RHCAN!  

Our Dog Dayz Pop-Up Arts weekend at the historic St. Margaret’s Home in late August was a great success.  The old building came to life with art, music and performance, and the community was happy to have an opportunity to view the house.  Ulster Savings Bank, RH Chamber of Commerce and Stewart’s Shops have our thanks for their financial support.

RHCAN has decided to embrace the pop-up format for presenting visual and performing arts for the near future.  These pop-ups will be curated quickly into unused and donated spaces as time allows, and celebrate the excitement and immediacy of new ideas and places.  If anyone in the community has an art exhibit, performance or workshop that they would like to produce, RHCAN can help with organization and publicity, and possibly the place and a little financial help.

The RHCAN gallery at 7516 N. Broadway will not be producing art shows for community use next year, but has rented exhibit space to several artists on a yearly basis, and will continue as the RHCAN Artists Collective.  Workshops, meetings and events for RHCAN will still be able to use the gallery space.

Here is other gallery news:  November and December exhibits in the RHCAN Gallery include a photography exhibit by a Bard international student and a holiday makers show, by Etsy members.
