The Dutch return to Peekskill and HVCCA & Alon Levin to give talk in New Paltz, Feb. 25

On Sunday, HVCCA opened an exhibit of work created by Karen Sargsyan during his Fall residency in Peekskill, with a reception and a question and answer session with the artist. The Armenian born Sargsyan is based in Amsterdam. Sargsyan's exhibit is part of a full year of programming, coincident with the quadricentennial of Hudson's voyage up the river, that recognizes the significant role of Dutch culture on the region.
In September, the museum will open a new exhibit called "Double Dutch: Exploring The Soul of Dutch Art Through the works of Seven Installation Artists". Sargsyan will be represented in Double Dutch, as will Alon Levin who has just embarked on a three month residency at SUNY New Paltz as part of a collaboration between the college's Department of Sculpture and the museum.

Levin will be giving a lecture on the SUNY New Paltz Campus on Wednesday February 25 at 7:30pm. The lecture will take place in Center 102. more details to follow.
