HVCCA in Peekskill has announced the appointment of Matthew Distel as it's new executive Director. Distel arrives at HVCCA from Cincinnati, Ohio where he served as Associate Curator of Exhibitions and Head of the Curatorial Department at the Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati.
More background information on Distel, and a link to a pdf of the official press release is located here.
Also, HVCCA's next exhibition, Reverence, opens tomorrow, May 20. There will be an opening reception for the exhibit at the Museum from 4-6pm. I expect that I will be pulling docent duty at the museum somewhere abouts 2pm. Come by and say hi.
