“Those Who Keep Us Free”: A Veterans Exhibition
Patrons' Gallery, December 18, 2018 - January 02, 2019
Gallery hours: Mon-Fri 1-6PM, Sat & Sun 1-5PM.
Club closed December 25.
Sunday, December 23rd at 2PM in the Parlor: Special presentation about this photography exhibition with VA NYHHS Creative Arts Therapist, Beryl Brenner (show curator), and Veterans.
A note about the show from the curator:
"There is a group of people who serve our country. They are called American Veterans. Because they make so many personal sacrifices, we have the luxury of living in a place where we generally feel safe and secure. However, these sacrifices are oftentimes quite difficult to make and we don’t acknowledge them as much as we should.
This exhibition of photography is an art exhibition that attempts to educate us about their world. It permits us to learn more about who they are. Their work speaks a special visual language that draws us in and compels us to learn more about them.
For me, curating the exhibition was not merely about showing their art. It was more of an opportunity to send them a thank you note in the form of an exhibition. We all owe them so much. For they are those that keep us FREE!"
Sponsored by the COGAP Committee of SCNY.
