What does ASK offer for visual artists?
ASK provides opportunities to promote their work through group and solo exhibitions at ASK: during the year, ASK hosts 10-12 members’ shows in one of its galleries at its headquarters at 97 Broadway near the Rondout in Kingston, as well as shows of featured artists at the same location and off-premises shows elsewhere in the area. ASK’s ground floor is handicapped accessible, and a chair lift aids visitors to ride up or down the stairs for classes or performances upstairs.
ASK supports arts education in schools and colleges: ASK has hosted shows by Kingston High School and elementary schools student artists, as well as shows by Bard, Marist College, SUNY New Paltz, and SUNY Ulster artists. ASK also regularly invites neighboring arts groups from the region to show at ASK, under the “Hello Neighbor” initiative.
