The Castle Gallery at The College of New Rochelle was recently awarded the 2012 Community Arts Award from ArtsWestchester. The award recognizes individuals and organizations whose vision, commitment, and leadership enrich Westchester, its communities, and its citizens. The Castle Gallery won the award for having “demonstrated extraordinary vision and leadership in using the arts to enhance community life, increasing access to cultural experiences, and by enriching the county’s cultural heritage.” The award was presented at ArtsWestchester’s Annual Arts Award Luncheon held April 4, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in White Plains.
Established in 1980, the Castle Gallery is open to the public and serves school groups and art lovers, offering a range of workshops, lectures, film screenings, demonstrations, and family activities free of charge. The Gallery also offers free tours that are tailored to the physical/psychological needs of each group, ensuring that all have access to the exhibits we display.
