Cherry Valley Artworks has grown into a flourishing cultural resource, not only for Cherry Valley but for the surrounding communities as well, celebrating the rich artistic life of the area and providing access to outstanding performances at The Star Theater, art installations, exhibitions, classes, dances, films and joyful community gatherings. Each season brings exciting new offerings as well as highly anticipated recurring events like The Cherry Valley Summer Sculpture Trail, The August Concert Series and The Cherry Valley Kite Festival.

Artworks programs are partially funded by grants from Chenango Arts Council's Decentralization program, a re-grant program of the NYS Council on the Arts with support from Governor Cuomo and the NYS legislature, by the Otsego County bed-tax grant and by the support of our members and patrons.
