More Than 100 Artists Featured During Peekskill Open Studios Weekend

For the 21st year, Peekskill Arts Alliance (PAA) presents a weekend of extensive arts activities throughout the City of Peekskill on June 2 and 3, including open artists’ studios, group exhibitions, pop-up exhibitions and collaborative events. A catalog, available online and at the North Division Street gazebo, details a map of participating artists and venues. A variety of mediums are on display, from Alison Pascoe’s stained glass and Jessica Dubin’s ceramics to Sarah Haviland’s sculptures and Maureen Winzig’s watercolor and oil paintings. According to PAA President Robin Kline, the event gives the Peekskill artists’ community “the opportunity to share [their] creative endeavors with visitors from within Peekskill, and to showcase Peekskill to visitors from surrounding areas.” An Off the Beaten Track exhibition at Westchester Community College’s Center for Digital Arts displays work from Peekskill artists whose studios are not in the downtown area. A new “Artisan’s Boutique” at Scarlett Antonia’s studio offers items like pottery, photographs and jewelry for sale. Free admission to Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art gives visitors a view of the Center’s current exhibitions, including Between I and Thou and Pop Revolution. Painters and poets will collaborate on spontaneous art creations at Division Street Guitars on Sunday. A pop-up “Truck Stop Gallery” transforms rented trucks into creative galleries on Central Avenue. Other venues include Paramount Hudson Valley, the Field Library, Peekskill Clay Studios, Flat Iron Gallery and more. For more info, visit
