The Art Association is delighted to announce five fabulous Soirees for the coming summer! Four will be offered in historic Uptown Harrisburg homes, and one in a more bucolic setting on Doehne Road just off North Progress Avenue. All five Soirees will feature exciting artwork, delectable refreshments, and stunning settings. The Soirees will all be held on Saturday evenings from 5 - 8 PM, with advance reservations @ $45 and payment at the door of $50. The proceeds from the Summer Soirees provide support for AAH education and exhibition programs.
