Painting, Poetry & Music
Saturday, June 11th
The Peekskill Arts Alliance (PAA) will host a new event this spring- Painting, Poetry and Music outdoors at the Beanrunner Café in Peekskill. While in past Painting Poetry events, painters have responded to poets on communal canvases, this year, painters will respond on individual canvases and for the first time, musicians will respond to both poets and painters. Three combined artworlds will create an incredible experience through a multimedia collaboration.
The program is made possible by generous support from ArtsWestchester via an Arts Alive Recovery NY Grant and matching funds from the Peekskill BID.

Join us as the PAA launches its first live exhibition this year at WCC with the theme “Re-emergence” to celebrate this momentous occasion. Safety measures will be undertaken including social distancing and mask requirements.
For more information, go to the Events page.
Looking Forward, a members’ show, is a selection of works—one from each artist—loosely based on the theme. Our diverse group of members includes artists of every level. From photography to sculpture and performance, from abstract to realistic, the common denominator is an optimism as we look ahead. A love of nature and an engagement with materials is demonstrated here.
PAA STATEMENT ON DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
The Peekskill Arts Alliance embraces the diversity of the varied cultures in our community. We continue to deepen our commitment to expanding and broadening the diversity of our membership and our board, encouraging the participation of artists who differ by life experiences and social identities such as race, color, ethnicity, religion/spirituality, age, socioeconomic background, disability, and gender identity or expression. We have a board committee whose purpose is to work with the Peekskill community to strive toward these goals. We continue to invite people of color and from widely diverse backgrounds to exhibit with us; to publish materials in both Spanish and English; and to offer discounted or free membership for those in need. Cultivating equity is vital to ensure that everyone has equal access to a vibrant, creative life, which is essential to a healthy and thriving PAA, representing our diverse community.
Being a member has its privileges! You get to work with and get to know your fellow artists, businesses, city officials, art venues and community organizations. Involvement in collaborative projects and the PAA itself is a rewarding experience and is also a good resume builder! Join the PAA and be part of an extraordinary organization!
