The Babylon Village Arts Council was formed in 2003 by a group of village residents who recognized the need to present various art experiences to the Babylon Village community. From that vision the Babylon Village Arts Council (BVAC) has become an integral part in the cultural lives of its residents.

Featured Artists for the Month: Wolfgang Van
My ability to draw was discovered at the age of six. I had drawn a pencil sketch of Michelangelo's "Creation of Man" and got in trouble. The teacher thought that I had stolen an older student's work. To everyone's surprise, I was able to draw the same thing free hand for the principal. I have been painting an sketching ever since.
Over the years I have exhibited at small street fairs, coffee shops and local galleries. My work has been noted by critics, and is desired by collectors. There are currently over 200 finished works in my catalog, and 20 in progress. From the early days of realism, to abstract expressionism, I continue to challenge my approach and execution with new styles.
