Located in rural Western New York, The Arts Council for Wyoming County provides arts and cultural programs and services to a far reaching area. Our building in downtown Perry, New York, houses our offices, two galleries and East Indian Screening Room. We regularly host exhibits of, mostly, local artists including annual exhibits of student work from kindergarten through college. Classes and workshops in many media are held here throughout the year. We are fortunate to have two pianos, including a Steinway Parlor Grand, both of which are used for events including our Twin Piano Concert and background music for Gallery opening receptions. The Gallery also plays host to meetings of local groups such as the Canyon Camera Club and Snippets Quilting group. And, finally, we come to the East Indian Screening Room and the Classic Film Series held there every Thursday night at 7. This series has garnered accolades from Rochester to Buffalo with high praise from the George Eastman House leading the way.
The Arts Council works in partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts in presenting Community Arts Grants to groups in all areas of the county. On average we distribute between $25 and $30 thousand to 15 to 20 different groups each year. These groups provide entertainment and education to thousands of people each year.
Our largest project is hosting the annual Letchworth Arts and Crafts Sale every Columbus Day Weekend in Letchworth State Park. During the height of the autumn leaf viewing season visitors from across the country come to see what’s new from the hundreds of arts and craft vendors, enjoy the festival’s entertainment and fill up on a wide variety of food and drink.
