Our Current Show
An Exhibition about Audacious Women!
By Marcy Freedman
Exhibit:October 5–December 13
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 11, 4-6pm
This exhibition, “Who Does She Think She Is!” features dozens of digital prints by Marcy B. Freedman.
The title of this exhibition acknowledges Freedman’s chutzpah with respect to the creation of these works as well as their content. Each artwork is a digitally-manipulated photo of the artist herself. How narcissistic! Furthermore, the artist has—in many cases—shamelessly merged her own identity with that of women much more accomplished/famous than herself. How presumptuous!
There is a lot of humor in Freedman’s work, but there is also a lot of food for thought. Ultimately, the exhibition serves to glorify the accomplishments of women who have been strong enough to break free of gender-stereotypes and to show the world just how much they can do!

NOTE: Freedman’s exhibition is part of a new, local
initiative called Peekskill: The Power of Women Artists (PPOWA). For its first incarnation, PPOWA is working
with three venues that will host exhibitions, performances and discussions—all featuring women artists and all taking place during the months of October,
November and December 2014. This year’s venues are the Hudson Valley
Center for Contemporary Art, Paramount Hudson Valley, and BeanRunner Cafe. For further

Our Last Show
Paintings by Daivd Patrick Lawter
Exhibit: August 10 – October 5
This exhibition showed the paintings of David Lawter.In describing his exhibit, “Undefined: Abstract Paintings”, Lawter states, “I know I’ve successfully created an abstract painting when it seems that I haven’t contributed to it’s creation. When I look at this group of paintings I know I’ve created them, but it also looks as if they just occurred through natural means.”.
