MasquerAid for Art Gala (Virtual)


Albany Center Gallery invites the community to come together to “aid art” at ACG’s 2020 MasquerAid for Art Gala

The event will take place virtually on Friday, November 20th from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. with an optional virtual dance party from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Full details here.

For decades, we have been hosting an annual fundraising art party that attendees are not quick to forget. This will not be your typical virtual gathering. We will have our awards ceremony (presenting the Mona Ruth Brickman Memorial Artist of the Year Award and the Les Urbach Lifetime Achievement Award), an online silent auction filled with art and other sought after items, a virtual dance party, and oh so much more! This year we get the best of both worlds, the party as well as being able to enjoy it from the comfort of home. 

By participating, you will be taking an active role in keeping visual art alive in Albany, while contributing firsthand to our region’s rich culture, economic livelihood, and history. 

For 40+ years, ACG has been presenting contemporary art exhibitions featuring works in all media from our region’s artists, with a focus on inspiring interest in and interaction with works of art by an increasingly diverse audience. Our reach extends beyond the walls of the Gallery into the community through public art projects and art programming. We can be seen at community events like Art on Lark and the Black Arts & Cultural Festival. Various other community programs we are involved with include: “Downtown is Pawsome,” the #CapitalWalls mural project, art consulting, and youth art programming. Through these pursuits, the Gallery consistently reaches over 55,000 individuals yearly.
