Among winners of annual Dutchess County honor
The Howland Chamber Music Circle and Beacon photographer Meredith Heuer were among the recipients of the 30th Annual Dutchess County Executive’s Arts Awards presented by Arts Mid-Hudson. All the winners will receive their awards on October 6 at a reception at Villa Borghese in Wappingers Falls.
The awards were founded in 1986 by then-Dutchess County Executive Lucille Pattison to recognize individuals and institutions that contribute to the area’s artistic quality.
The Howland Chamber Music Circle, based at the Howland Cultural Center in Beacon, won the Arts Organization Award, while Heuer, who recently received a state grant for her Beacon Portrait Project, was recognized with the Arts in Education Award.
