Did you know that we at Rhinebeck Bank offer a free Artwork Program? Launched in 2017, this program provides local, Hudson Valley artists with the opportunity to host an exhibit in our branch art galleries. Our Rhinebeck and Beacon branch locations currently participate in this program.

With our Artwork Program, your work can be displayed in the branch of your choosing, and artist collections are on display for 6-8 weeks. There is no cost to sign up, no cost to hang or display work, nor does the bank take any commission on works that are sold as a result of any publicity. Artists are permitted and encouraged to sell their work on site, though this is not required.

Since the start of the program, Rhinebeck Bank has formed a successful partnership with The Art Effect and we showcase their student work on an ongoing basis; however, we also accept submissions from individual, unaffiliated artists. Additionally, photography is welcomed. The Art Effect, formerly known as Mill Street Loft and Spark Media Project, currently has a student exhibit in the Beacon branch through June 30th that can be viewed during business hours. We also have a solo artist, Prudence Haze, whose Spring Bloom collection can be viewed in the Rhinebeck branch through June 30th. To read our featured artist’s bios, check out Newsworthy.aspx.

I’ve been fortunate to coordinate this program and I’ve gotten to know so many artists and members of our community! Interested artists are encouraged to email Artwork@RhinebeckBank.com. We generally request a brief biography, as well as photo samples to promote your work through social media and a press release. We look forward to hearing from you!
