Dear Friends,

On Black Friday 2018 the Reboli Center celebrated two years since we opened our doors to the public! It’s been two years of artists, speakers, teachers, friends, and donors fulfilling our mission to be a vibrant center for the arts and history. We hope that in those 24 months you have had a chance to enjoy our exhibits, to learn from our programs and classes, to find wonderful gifts, and to find an art home that is beautiful, peaceful and inspired.

We are planning four exciting exhibits for 2019 and a full program of Third Fridays and educational workshops. The exhibits will feature a remarkable group of artists. Our exhibit themes will fulfill one of our mission objectives: to educate our visitors about the life and works of Joseph Reboli, other artists, and Long Island history. Through the exhibits and programs, visitors will gain an understanding and appreciation of Reboli art, the work of other artists, art in general, and Long Island history.

We are proud to have free admission to our exhibits and lecture series. Last year’s grants and donor contributions allow that gift to our community to be continued. Donations of Reboli paintings for our collection, donations of talent for our programs and building, and donations from community businesses have allowed us to be successful for another year. Our Annual Appeal and the donors who send in their financial gifts are a necessary and important part of our ability to present the exhibits and programs!

This month we begin our Annual Appeal. We need your help to continue our success. We are asking you to support us with a financial gift. The current expenses for our building, staff, utilities, publications, insurance, programs, and exhibits are $400/day. Your gift will help us cover these expenses and continue to be a community center of excellence. We hope that you will be able to match or increase your donation from last year.

We hope that we can count on your tax deductible contribution to the 2018 Reboli Center for Art and History Annual Appeal. We hope you’ll be part of our family, and thank you for supporting us with your generosity. We wish you the many blessings of the holiday season! Be sure to visit us and make the Reboli Center a part of it!

Lois Reboli, President
