American Artists Professional League announces its first in-person exhibition at the historic Howland Cultural Center in Beacon, NY, on display from August 26 through October 1, 2023. 

This is a special show, as it celebrates the AAPL’s 95th anniversary.

All artwork will be for sale at the show and online in the AAPLinc.org/artwork-store. The show will be on display on two floors of the Howland Cultural Center’s Northcutt Hall Gallery.

The non-profit Howland Cultural Center is the ‘Jewel of Beacon,’ an historic venue originally built in 1872 as a library by the architect Richard Morris Hunt. The center now serves as a vibrant hub for cultural events and activities, including art exhibitions, musical performances, and literary readings.  The center’s mission is to promote and celebrate the arts, culture, and community of the Hudson Valley region.  With its stunning Victorian architecture and rich background, the Howland Cultural Center is a beloved and important institution in the local community.

The Howland Cultural Center is in Beacon, about 60 miles north of New York City, and has gained a reputation as an artsy community, attracting artists, collectors, musicians, and visitors from all over the world.  Beacon has numerous galleries, studios, and art events throughout the year.
