Summer Benefit

Every summer, Ox-Bow supporters gather on the meadow to celebrate our community and raise Funds that are critical to sustaining our programs and preserving our historic campus. 

 

SAVE THE DATE! Our 2017 Summer Benefit will be held on:

July 8, 2017

 

Enjoy an evening on the meadow with the Ox-Bow community, celebrating the work of this year's honoree, Max Matteson. 

This year's honorary Co-Chairs are E.W. Ross and Patricia Pelletier, and David and Judy Geerts. 

 

In 2016, we honored glass artist and long-time Ox-bow teacher, Jerry Catania. Over three decades, Jerry has made overwhelming contributions to the development of our renowned glass program. Check out the Photos below to see all the fun we had!

We're grateful to all of our sponsors and supporters!
