Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) is proud to present this exhibition of works by members of the Peekskill Artist Club, a group of emerging artists from the Hudson Valley region who have been meeting monthly at HVCCA for dialogue and critique, eager to continue the growth found through discourse that characterized their time in art school. Though disparate in style and artistic medium, varied in esthetics and gallery representation as well as years of artistic practice, they share a common passion to grow and improve.
Over this two and a half year period, their work has grown and morphed, gaining from group critique and constructive self-analysis. This exhibition is a culmination of this period of their time together, a step along the path to greater artistic growth, self-knowledge and creativity.
