Bethel arts council debuts


August 31, 2016

BETHEL, NY — The newly formed Bethel Council of the Arts will be holding its premiere event, an art auction and cocktail party reception, at Kauneonga Cove (1 Horseshoe Lake Rd./3575 Rte. 55) on Saturday, September 3. From 4 to 7 p.m., the public can view the works of some 30 local artists working in a variety of mediums, including James Hawley, Fancesca Robledo, Laurie Schwartz, Paul Stark and TRR’s Jonathan Charles Fox. A cocktail reception, featuring light refreshments and music by local musicians including Shlomo Franklin, runs from 7 to 10 p.m. Silent bidding for the art begins at 4 and will end at 9:30 p.m. Proceeds of the auction will go to support the work of the council, whose mission is to “foster artistic expression, civic participation and the economic growth of our diverse community by supporting, promoting and advocating for arts and culture.”
