Windows on the Past
Artworks paid special tribute to the rich cultural history of Cherry Valley with displays in Main Street storefronts in 2009. The five featured individuals were Pulitzer Prize-winning Novelist Willa Cather, acclaimed beat poet Allen Ginsberg; WWI pacifist and author Howard W. Moore; Samuel F. B. Morse, inventor of the telegraph; and Dr. Joseph White, founder of one of the first medical schools in New York State.
A Day in Cherry Valley
Artworks was launched in August 2004 with A Day in Cherry Valley
. Hundreds of disposable cameras were distributed to individuals throughout the community, who had 24 hours to capture their vision of Cherry Valley. The following weekend an exhibit of over 600 photographs displayed the beauty of Cherry Valley through the eyes of the people who call it home.
Beginning in December 2007, Cherry Valley Artworks collaborated with the Cherry Valley Radio Players and Cherry Valley Community Facilities Corporation to present dramatic programs for the holidays.
In August 2011 Cherry Valley Artworks presented its first concert series, with musicians drawn from the prestigious Glimmerglass Festival Orchestra. Those musicians—plus a few special guests—return in 2013 with three new programs on July 28, August 4 and August 18.
