Albany Center Gallery (ACG) will host the Future 40 Gala from 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at the Renaissance Albany Hotel, located at 144 State Street.

By attending ACG's annual gala, you will play an important role in keeping visual art alive in a revitalized downtown Albany, as well as contributing directly to our region’s rich culture, economic livelihood, and history.

Over 250 guests are anticipated to attend who will share in the spirit of art appreciation and enjoy live music, entertainment, auction items (including specially selected art by local artists throughout the region), raffles, great food, and drink. ACG will also present the Mona Ruth Brickman Artist of the Year Award and theLes Urbach Lifetime Achievement Award during the evening's event.

Thanks to community support and people like you, ACG has had the privilege of being at the forefront of our region's art scene for 40 years. The Gallery presents contemporary art exhibitions featuring all media, with a focus on imaginative works that challenge the standard of today's art. Our reach extends beyond the walls of the Gallery into the community through our mural program, community art projects in partnership with the City of Albany’s Special Events office, and various other programs including: children's learning activities, “Sculpture in the Streets,” Art on Lark, Black Arts & Cultural Fest, and the Times Union Center Home Expo. Through these pursuits, the Gallery consistently reaches over 55,000 individuals yearly.

All proceeds raised from the Gala will benefit ACG in its mission: to promote and exhibit contemporary visual art produced by emerging and established artists living in the region, to inspire and provide enjoyment to an increasingly diverse audience, thereby contributing to the growth of our local community.
