Hoping that the traditional "salonistas" of Peekskill's Artist District will attend. Also, would love to have former and current WCC drawing students attend. Would be so great to have your input for this program!

The "Alternet" goes on the road! With the "Alternet" are "Call to Everyone" a cell-phone photo interactive collection organized by JoAnne Wilcox, and "BookMarks" a collection of personal reflections on books read by Barbara Page. "Artists in the Arcives" will be traveling to libraries in the Northeast for two or three years. We hope you can come to see an amazing collection of cards that honor creativity, collective knowledge and vision. We will keep you posted on where and when you can visit the exhibition.
