March is Membership Month
The March Members’ exhibit and annual meeting scheduled scheduled for March 14 have been postponed, as we feel it wiser to wait and present these events at a later date in 2020, when folks may feel more confident and comfortable about attending a large public event.
Artists: please hold off delivery of your artwork until rescheduling details are announced.
The Putnam Arts Council is pleased to welcome families back to the our Gallery on Saturday, September 12, 2020 with timed reservations from 1-5pm as we proudly present:

Sherry Mayo – Graphite Works on Papers: Mayo’s graphite works on paper are meditations that are sometimes very abstract and then recognizable. Images come from a variety of sources including nature, art historical references, and personal symbology. Many sketches precede the larger scale drawings. But they are still comprised of tiny marks that build up stroke by stroke to compose a scene often from another world never seen before. It is a quest to connect to consciousness in a direct way and attempt to create an experience for a view to travel somewhere else for even just a moment.
On exhibition from October 2-25 (a public reception is TBD).
Mahopac Public Library is currently open with limited access. Hours are: M-F, 9:30 am – 7 pm, SA, 9:30 am – 3 pm, Su, 1-5 pm.
