PEEKSKILL, N.Y. ‒ Downtown Peekskill will become an "open air" art gallery Saturday thanks to the efforts of the Peekskill Business Improvement District and the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art.
There will be a Winter Windows Artcrawl from 5 to 6 p.m. starting at The Peekskill Coffee House, 101 S. Division St. The crawl takes in 14 illuminated artworks installed in storefront windows throughout downtown.
The tour will also include two "art happenings," art projections occurring on the streets. The window installations will remain on display through December.
For more information, see the Winter Windows Art Crawl Map.
There will also be a Downtown Pop-up Gallery Reception from 6 to 8 p.m. at 906 Main St. Light refreshments and music from Tiki Daddy, who blends "Hawaiian swing and cross-over Americana," are included.
Visitors can shop for holiday gifts created by 12 visual fine artists from Peekskill Project and the Greater Hudson Valley Region. The gallery will remain open on Sunday from 1-6 p.m.
Exhibits by members of the Peekskill Arts Alliance will be displayed at Scott Camera and Studio, 12 S. Division St.
All month long, BID’s “Peekskill Makes Me Merry” campaign will include a 10 percent discount for holiday shoppers across participating downtown businesses. For details, click here.
