Upcoming Events

THANK YOU to all of our guests at this year’s Magnolia Party. It was another fun fundraiser and we appreciate everyone’s support! Rose Mary Neilson provided lovely background music and Madeline Galbraith sang and played the keyboard as well. Penny Dell’s unique exhibit, “Starring Hive/Security” adorned the Hall Gallery walls and she circulated through the crowd describing her artistic process and answering questions.
We are particularly grateful to the businesses that donated prizes for our Raffle which alone raised over $600: The Mohonk Preserve, Zimmer Brothers Jewelers, Hyde Park Jewelers, Crew Restaurant and Milanese Italian Restaurant, Scott Halma-Way Reflexologist and Reiki Master, Southside Liquors, Half Time Beverages, Adams Fairacre Farms, Morgan’s Florist. To our generous Board members Sharon Gates, MaryAnn Lohrey, Ardith Orr, Virginia Hancock, and Jackie Peterson! Simply Gourmet again catered some of our delicious food offering us a nonprofit discount. We had excellent additions of pulled pork sliders with homemade BBQ sauce donated by Erin and Alex Galbraith and Mediterranean Chicken Pasta Salad and Vichyssoise made by John North. A big shout out to A. Page and Associates for its sponsorship and donations by Architectural Management Co., Gully Standford and Dorothy Denny, Mary Cassese, and to the Mayor of Poughkeepsie, Rob Rolison and his wife Lori for their continuing support not only for the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center, but for their active participation in so many nonprofit organizations that serve our community.
The Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center is fortunate indeed to have such loyal and supportive friends and we look forward to continuing our mission to provide venues for cultural and educational experiences for many more years.


What if there was a place you could hear a brass quartet ensemble, participate in a poetry slam, learn to move to the Salsa beat, see Shakespeare’s work come alive, view a vibrant watercolor exhibit and sip tea in a Victorian parlor? What if all these opportunities and more were housed in two 130 year old landmark buildings in the middle of a neighborhood undergoing a renaissance; where galleries, restaurants, other historic sites, the railroad station and the majestic Hudson River are only blocks away?

Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center!
