This exhibit features the work of contemporary artists who have completed residencies at the Center for Photography at Woodstock. CPW is New York State’s celebrated workspace for emerging photographers. The agency recently won a coveted Lucie Award for contributions to the field. Events accompanying this exhibit focus on opportunities for artists. A companion exhibit in the Town History Gallery, curated by Vickie Berger, President of the Historical Society of Islip Hamlet, features 1900’s photographer Edgar Van Sicklen’s glass plate negatives of the hamlet of Islip.
