Newburgh Through the Lens of Art - Art Show this week
On Thursday, November 1, 2018, from 4:00pm-8:00pm at Newburgh Free Academy’s Main Campus, Eagle’s Nest Gallery, local collections of paintings and prints that highlight Newburgh’s history, architecture and natural beauty will be shown. This show will highlight over 40 watercolors, colorful oil paintings as well as pencil sketches. We are grateful to the many people who have graciously loaned their private art to be displayed and also look forward to introducing student creations.
The art show is organized by the NFA Social Studies department to benefit the NFA Debate team. The Newburgh Through the Lens of Art Show 2018 offers intimately scaled and creatively mixed interpretations of Newburgh during the last two centuries. These presentations will foster active conversations with students and guests about Newburgh’s past and bright future.
Free admission, but organizers will be accepting donations at the door. There will also be a silent auction for a few of the pieces of art.
