A not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization Serving the community since 1925 in Philanthropy, Community Needs, the Arts, Education including programs on Literature and Writing, and Well Being programs for all ages.
Founded in 1946
Sixty-nine years ago, in celebration of its 26th Anniversary, the Westchester County Federation of Women’s Clubs began the annual competitive countywide art exhibition known today as the “Beaux Arts.” The purpose was to foster understanding and appreciation of the arts while encouraging and helping promote artists throughout Westchester County.
These exhibitions offer Westchester artists the opportunity to display their talents and to receive deserved recognition while enhancing awareness of the arts at the local community level.
First place winners from each of the participating clubs are displayed for final judging at the end of the season in The Beaux Arts Finale. The Beaux Arts Finale is the culmination of the art exhibitions of the Federation member clubs. A deep expression of gratitude is owed to the judges for their professional contribution to these exhibitions.
Proceeds from the Beaux Arts Project benefit the Federation’s Scholarship Fund for deserving students at Westchester Community College.
Due to unforseen circumstances, the 2014 Beaux Arts Finale did not take place in July 2014. Consequently, it was combined with the 2015 Beaux Arts Finale. The years were judged separately. Congratulations to all who entered: they were all first place winners in the regional competitions.
The exhibit is open through the end of the month of July. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. There is no admission charge. Many of the works are for sale. If interested, please contact Joyce Balint at the BWC for information.
