Art Centers are the heart and soul of regional art communities. They are lively ecosystems, an epicenter of community, and embody the importance of art being rooted in every aspect of a civilized society. As a local gathering place for artists and art lovers, they support artists in building a sustainable studio practice, offer space to work, tools and resources for creation, and the opportunity to network with other artists and to exhibit.
This exhibition, a partnership between the Putnam Arts Council and the Center for the Digital Arts Gallery, Peekskill Extension, Westchester Community College, will connect and showcase the grassroots talent of artists across the Hudson Valley, from Peekskill to Poughkeepsie, in the partner galleries. The opening will be at the Putnam Arts Council while the closing will be at the Center for the Digital Arts Gallery, Peekskill Extension, Westchester Community College.
Under the theme of Grass + Roots, the exhibition will survey and celebrate the beauty, strength, and resilience of the art and artists of the Hudson Valley.
All genres, media, and technology will be considered. The show will be juried for exhibition and awards by Patricia Miranda.
