The Art Effect and Barrett Art Center came together in 2021 through a transformational merger growing The Art Effect’s mission to empower youth as leaders who catalyze and engage the community through the arts and re-energize downtown Poughkeepsie. The merger opened doors of new opportunities in exhibition and education, creating a space that matches the breadth of our combined entity.
During its nearly century-long lifetime, the Barrett Art Center’s mission was to foster and perpetuate an appreciation of the visual arts in the Hudson Valley region through exhibitions, education and preservation. Barrett’s programming engaged and supported our diverse community. Through the merger and support of Barrett Art Center’s membership, The Art Effect’s youth curatorial training program has successfully hosted, curated and exhibited more than a dozen exhibitions as well as hosted the first PKX Arts Festival establishing the beginning of a Youth Arts Empowerment Zone in Poughkeepsie, NY.
The Members’ show will take place at the Trolley Barn Gallery from November 18 – December 9, 2022 with an opening reception on Friday, November 18, 2022 from 6-8pm.
