Announcing a new collaboration with Wave Hill to present the 21st Annual International

Wave Hill, a spectacular public garden and cultural center overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades, will be ASBA’s partner in producing and hosting the Annual International in 2018 and 2020. Since its founding in 1965, Wave Hill has evolved as a unique urban oasis and vital community resource. Through innovative programs in horticulture, education and the arts, Wave Hill connects people to nature in meaningful and lasting ways. Its gardens, grounds and spectacular landscape provide a safe and welcoming place to be inspired and learn from the biodiversity and beauty that nature offers, while reminding us that we are an important part of our ecosystem and our earth. Wave Hill’s vibrant visual arts programing features exhibitions in Glyndor Gallery, Wave Hill House and on the grounds; art workshops for adults and families; and the Winter Workspace, an artists-in-residency program. It also offers indoor and outdoor concerts through the four seasons.

We are looking forward to a happy and productive relationship with Wave Hill! 

A sketching day for artists is being planned for September 19, 2017.  See the Events tab above for more information.
