It was a special evening for us and we hope you enjoyed the fabulous food and drink vendors that provided us with a delicious experience! Guests enjoyed over 70 pieces of artwork created by young artists as part of The Art Institute Summer Intensive and the Junior Art Institute. This exhibition represented only a small portion of the more than 1,500 works created last summer, and therefore it was an incredible accomplishment for each of these young artists to have their work chosen for display. Students with work in the show ranged from 14 –18 years old and came from schools around the Hudson Valley and beyond.While exploring artwork through the Trolley Barn, guests also listened to live music from the Absolute Zeros and tasted food and drinks from many great local food and beverage vendors. From dessert samplings like cupcakes and fudge to hot dishes like mac ‘n cheese and taquitos, guests enjoyed samples paired with great local beer from Foreign Objects Beer and Mill House Brewing Company. A special thank you to all of our wonderful vendors for the evening:
Cyn’s Sweet Tooth
The Educated Chef
El Azteca Mexican
Foreign Objects Beer
Hudson River Housing Coffee House, Cafe & Kitchen
Noshi’s Coney Island
Twisted Soul Food Concepts
Sprout Creek Farm
This exhibition was the first in the gallery at the newly renovated Poughkeepsie Trolley Barn. Guests had the opportunity to tour the rest of the Trolley Barn with Dean Temple, President of the Board at The Art Effect, and Roy Budnik from the Mid-Hudson Heritage Center. We then invited guests to provide us with feedback on a potential move of The Art Effect’s offices and studios to the Trolley Barn once the rest of the restoration is complete through a survey as well as through a selfie station here: All of the proceeds of Art After Hours support The Art Effect’s youth programs.
