Time to gather and celebrate our art community as we honor our Artist of the Year, Tom D'Angelo, our Patron of the Year, the Greater Easton Development Partnership, Yevette Hendler as volunteer of the year and our two scholarship recipients.
This years Patron of the Year is the parent organization of the Easton Main Street Initiativeand The Easton Farmers' Market, both organizations that have partnered with ACE throughout the years to share information regarding public arts projects and exhibition space and opportunties. Both organizations have done tremendous work towards pushing the arts forward and we are pleased to work with and to honor them this year.
Our Artist of the Year, Tom D'Angelo, has worked in cooperation with organizations such as the Easton Main Street Initiative to bring artsist out of their work spaces and into the streets. Seeing an opportunity to turn the 3rd Street construction into a potential fundraiser, Tom rallied artists to create work for a beautiful show at the Nurture Nature Center, raising funds for MainStreet. Along with Minni Santilli, Our Garage Space has become one of the most exciting and hot spaces to view art in Easton. Litterally in their garage sapce, Tom and Minni have introduced art lovers to a diverse array of artsits and musicians, providing a valuable asset to Easton's creative vibe.
