Thank you for being part of our past.

In 1979, Nancy Harding gathered friends and started the Roxbury Arts Group. The current Roxbury Arts Center was purchased in 1988. The building was lovingly renovated and historically preserved to house our growing organization, which has brought the arts to generations in our community.

Thank you for being part of our present.

Today our thriving arts organization, with facilities in Roxbury, Stamford and Denver, provides our community, and students in fourteen nearby schools, with rich programming in the arts. This year, it has been tremendously gratifying to see our galleries full of visitors viewing works by area artists; robust audiences appreciating performers on our stages; emerging and established artists, of all ages and abilities, learning together in workshops led by the most talented people in our community; and Delaware County creatives engaged in opportunities to help them grow their artistic practices. This season’s performance highlights have included Buffalo Nichols’ stirring concert at the Roxbury Arts Center, the high energy of the Thalea String Quartet at the Old School Baptist Church, the exuberance of the Prodigals in Stamford, and Pamyua’s extraordinary Inuit music and dance performed in Roxbury, at Margaretville Central School and Stamford’s Kiddie Corner. Other 2023 highlights include the distribution of $80,000 through the Delaware County Arts Grants program, which created extraordinary opportunities for arts engagement throughout the county. It’s been a great year!

Thank you for being part of our future.

In 2024, we will celebrate our 45th anniversary. As we look toward our future, we continue to work to improve our visitor experience. Updates to our lighting, heating and cooling systems are necessary to keep our audience comfortable, and will enable us to extend our extraordinary performance and event season. While we are grateful for the support we have received from New York State and other funding sources, that support is not always guaranteed. The support we count on is yours. You make the arts happen in our community!
