Peekskill: In Plain Sight, Yet Unseen
September 14 @ 9:00 am - October 18 @ 5:00 pm
See, through the camera of Joseph Squillante, into a magical and enchanting town, his love of the history, people, places and things will be brought to light through photography. Pictured are a potpourri of places we may walk right by and never notice, people we may not meet, and historic artifacts.
Represented in the show will be a group of my classic Hudson River photographs of grand views at Peekskill Bay to the inside of intriguing places like the Underground Railroad and the Meeting Room atop the Elks Lodge. Buildings like Centennial Hose 4 firehouse, Saint Mary’s Chapel and the Lent House can also be seen. Artists in their “Open Studios,” musicians and craftsmen living and working here are shown.
Historically rich Peekskill will be brought to light with Revolutionary War artifacts retrieved from Fort Hill Park, three post office mile makers from Benjamin Franklin’s time and much more.
Please come to the Opening Reception: Saturday, September 14, 2-4 pm.
For information: 914-737-0010.
