Welcome to the Bethany Arts Community (BAC) in Ossining, New York
I had a vision of creating a community of artists that not only interacts with each other but with the community as a whole, locally and globally. BAC is a place where the established artist can tap into the potential that resides within, the new artist can continue to find their creative voice and the beginner (including the “I am not an artist”) can learn and grow. BAC is a place where all levels of artists can gather to help each other and each other’s art flourish. It is exciting to have you here and we are looking forward to enhancing the creative process.
Thank you for joining us.

Hispanic Dance & Music – Family Friendly Free Show
Bethany Arts Community is proud to announce the first of many Hispanic Dance and Music programs we’ll be bringing to the region. Join us for a family friendly presentation of rhythm and culture featuring two diverse groups of artists. This event brings you innovative Flamenco dance led by the award-winning Rebeca Tomás and modern Colombian music by world-renowned Folklore Urbano. These artists have performed in venues around the world and are excited to be sharing their talents with their Hudson Valley neighbors. The energy they bring to our performance space will get your hands clapping and your feet stomping, and make it hard to stay in your seats!
Soon after these artists are done entertaining you, they’ll be sharing their skills with our youngest neighbors. Both groups will be teaching Bethany’s first children’s programs offered to students of the Ossining School District.

“Arts and artists have a way of raising up a community to its highest potential. Bethany arriving in Ossining is a game changer for an already artistic community. Not only will Bethany serve as inspiration, but also as an art making home to so many artists at so many points in their artistic lives. I can’t wait to see the conversations, collaborations and artistic growth that Bethany will be home to. And I am delighted that Bethany chose Ossining as its home.”Jessica Irons
We'd love to hear from you.
