  • Andrea Robbins-Rimberg of Milford has been selected for the Visual Art Hall of Fame.




The PoconoArts Council’s 5th Annual Spring for the Arts will be held on March 15 at Terraview at Stroudsmoor Country Inn that includes art, music, fine food and company. This year, First Keystone Community Bank is the newest sponsor, as well as the continued support of Stroudsmoor Country Inn.

As established last year, PoconoArts will be honoring several local artists in its newly created “Hall of Fame” during the event. This year’s recipients are Andrea Robbins-Rimberg, Visual Art Hall of Fame; Sally Notara, Performing Art Hall of Fame; and Peter Salmon, Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Additionally, PoconoArts will recognize several “Rising Stars,” students selected from its Youth in Music Excellence Awards and Student Juried Exhibition.

“We are very excited to be honoring Andrea, Sally and Peter who have long been a significant part of our local arts community," said Laura Goss, PoconoArts Executive Director. "We are also thrilled to recognize our 'rising stars,' the students who represent the future of the arts in our community.”

The gala begins with a preview of the live and silent auction items from 6 to 7 p.m. with entertainment by the Lost Ramblers, followed by dinner and recognition of this year’s award recipients. The live auction follows, featuring art and other surprises. Silent auction items include visual and performing arts as well as items and services from local merchants and organizations. Key boxes with valuable prizes will also be on tap for those wishing to try their luck.

If unable to attend the auction, raffle tickets are being sold to support PoconoArts with the winners pulled that evening. Prizes include two full season tickets to the Buck Hill Skytop Music Festival; a one night stay for two at the Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort; Dinner for six at Stroudsmoor Country Inn; and an 18” furniture room or $200 gift certificate from The Queen’s Treasures. Raffle tickets are $5 each or six for $25.

Tickets for the gala are a reasonable $60 per person for PoconoArts members and $70 for non-members. For further information, or to reserve a place, call the Pocono Arts Council at 570-476-4460 or visit www.poconoarts.org to reserve on line.
