Join us for “Eat the Past,” a food-themed Bookmarks reading curated by Steve Barnes of Table Hopping.
Reading: Wednesday, March 19th | 7PM
Taste and smell are rooted in some of the most primitive parts of our brain, and so food-related moments provide some of our most powerful memories. Let’s share stories about meals we remember and, perhaps, the perils of trying to recreate them.

The Arts Center of the Capital Region’s Gala is right around the corner – May 21, 2014. This year’s Gala will be held at The Arts Center from 5:30pm to 9:00pm.

Hundreds of pieces of art will be displayed throughout our gallery and first floor, all of it produced by regional artists, both professional and amateur. And we will also be announcing the winners of our second annual established and emerging artist awards.
