There were over 100 participating artists with 24 opening their studios throughout downtown Peekskill. Thirteen galleries displayed art along with C restaurants and the Field Library. Several studios were open at the Peekskill Hat Factory including PranaMoon, the Peekskill Clay Studios and 4 individual artists. The gallery at Westchester Community College displayed the traditional “Off the Beaten Track” show. while another 22 artists showed fine arts and crafts in tents at the “Tent Site Gallery” in the K-Lot on Central Avenue.

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.
