To the editor:
On behalf of the John D. Barrow Art Gallery I would like to express our deep gratitude for being awarded on of this year’s SKARTS grants. Your award of $1,000 towards the expenses of hosting our collaborative event with The Skaneateles Festival and The Finger Lakes Land Trust in August will greatly help us make this a wonderful evening and kick off for the Festival’s 34th year.
The Skaneateles Festival’s first season was in Library Hall and in the years since then it has grown to be a world class music festival. The Finger Lakes Land Trust is dedicated to the preservation and conservation of the lake’s surrounding countryside. The John D. Barrow Art Gallery has been the cultural center of the arts in Skaneateles for over one hundred years.
Mr. Barrow’s Centennial address and call to action has never been more compelling. This joint event will once again remind all of us who love the arts and our beautiful watershed to unite in celebration of those gifts that enrich our lives.
Rest assured that your generosity will be acknowledged and used wisely.
DIRECTOR, JOHN D. BARROW ART GALLERY
