CENTENNIAL

For one hundred years the Woodstock Artists Association has endured as one of the region’s most significant cultural resources. In every way, your support has provided the necessary funds for us to continue our mission to promote and foster the visual arts. Gifts to WAAM represent approximately 50% of the funds necessary to provide exhibition opportunities to the region’s artists, educate youth through our education program, and to enrich the community through lectures, gallery talks, films and exhibitions of regional and national importance. 

We hope that you will continue to express your support in this very special centennial year through one of the following opportunities and support levels.

Centennial Publication

Woodstock Artists Association: One Hundred Years of Community and Art

The remarkable history of the Woodstock Artists Association is captured in our forthcoming publication, Woodstock Artists Association: One Hundred Years of Community and Art. Published on the occasion of this vibrant organization’s centennial year, the book includes a foreword by executive director Janice La Motta, an essay on the history of the WAA by historian and Woodstock art scholar Tom Wolf, an essay on the history and development of the WAA’s landmark Permanent Collection by American art scholar Bruce Weber, an illustrated chronology and 115 artwork highlights from the Permanent Collection. The limited edition, 302 page full-color book celebrates the rich history of our institution and its significant role in the development of the unique Woodstock art colony.

The Woodstock Artists Association has a rich history serving as an important cultural resource. Sharing the region’s cultural heritage and inspiring the current and next generation of artists through programs and exhibitions is central to WAAM’s mission “to promote and foster the visual arts, art education, and artists.” We honor the accomplishments of the past century and we look forward to the next century with great optimism, vision and verve. Members of our Next Century Club are generous donors whose gifts represent their extraordinary commitment to the arts and provide the necessary funds to serve over 15,000 annual visitors through diverse exhibitions, lectures, gallery talks, films and performances as well as preserving the WAAM facilities and strengthen our Permanent Collection and Archives. Please consider a membership to the Next Century Club today and ensure that your gift sustains the important work of the Woodstock Artists Association.

Centennial Fund 

Sustaining a non-profit organization for one hundred years is no small feat. The Woodstock Artists Association has grown from a one-room gallery open during the summer months to a vibrant cultural arts center that boasts five galleries, a Permanent Collection, an education program and an Archives. Through a dynamic exhibition series and related arts programming that includes lectures, films, performances and special events, the Woodstock Artists Association has been a beacon for the region’s artists and art-appreciating audience. Through the generous support of our members, artists, donors and funders we have thrived for one hundred years. You have helped us to present a diverse series of programs and exhibitions, helped us care for our one hundred year old building, helped us to conserve and preserve the legacy of the artists who have lived and worked in our region and to bring an arts education curriculum to the youth in our community. We ask for your support so that we can continue to make your experience at WAAM as vibrant, educational and inspiring as possible. Please join us in celebrating this very special one hundredth anniversary and make a contribution to our Centennial Fund today.
