On December 16th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm the community is invited to join the Field Library as they present a reception for the Peekskill Arts Alliance’s end of the year exhibition entitled: CREATIVITY in 2023. The exhibition, which has been on display since December 6th is slated to run until December 27th in the Field Gallery, located on the mezzanine level of The Field Library. Visitors can view Creativity in 2023 in the Field Gallery anytime the Field Library is open. 

The Field Gallery, at the Field Library, was established 16 years ago when the library converted a former law library into a gallery space which quickly became an integral part of the Peekskill artist community. Exhibits at the space typically run run for 6-12 weeks. 

The Peekskill Arts Alliance is a vital community partner in Peekskill and beyond. It is a not for profit group of over 100 artists and organizations from the community who promote the arts community in Peekskill and throughout the Hudson Valley.
