At CAS: It’s a Party!

 40th Anniversary Is Cause for Big Sept. 29 Celebration

Livingston Manor, NY – Catskill Art Society (CAS) is hosting a party to celebrate the organization’s 40th Anniversary on Saturday, September 29 from 7:00-10:00 p.m. at the CAS Arts Center, located at 48 Main Street in Livingston Manor, NY.  2012 marks 40 years of providing exhibitions, classes, and community for artists and people who care about the arts.

Everyone is invited to enjoy a special evening of dinner catered by Flour Power Bakery and Café, wine from Eminence Road Farm Winery and Callicoon Wine Merchant, and live music. Tours of CAS’s proposed second floor theater and performance space will also be provided.

With donations from CAS members and the community, Catskill Art Society purchased the CAS Arts Center building at 48 Main Street out of foreclosure in October 2011. The 4,500 square foot first floor was renovated for CAS to become a tenant in 2007. Since purchasing the building, CAS has completed major work to reinforce and stabilize the foundation and roof of the 9,000 square foot building. Improving the building’s energy efficiency is next and then on to the real fun: renovating the second floor into a theater and performance space.

A $40 donation in honor of CAS’s 40th year as an organization is suggested at the door. Advance reservations are required. RSVP to the CAS Arts Center at 845-436-4227 or ann@catskillartsociety.org
