September 2016 EXHIBITS
September 1 – 30, 2016
While growing up, his godfather always had a camera in his hand, and as a boy Anthony was always in front of the camera as a model – being the only child among a large extended family.
Anthony started taking photos as a young boy. At 22, while working as an accountant on Wall Street, he enrolled in photography school. Anthony eventually left his Wall Street job behind for a more artistic and rewarding career in graphic arts and advertising.
Black and white has always been a particular favorite for Anthony. Over the years, Anthony has shot literally thousands of photographs. He received the “Best in Show” award at the Newburgh Free Library’s Community Art Show in 2016, for his black and white photograph, Sunrise.
Anthony and his wife Madeline live between Brooklyn and Newburgh.
Photographer Cathy Miller has captured the essence of the work of Chilean muralist Francisco “Dasic” Fernández in these vibrant, colorful prints.
Cathy is primarily a self-taught photographer, but she honed her skills while working for Safe Harbors in Newburgh. Photography has been a life-long interest.

In the glass display case in the lobby, view Valerie Yanes’ handmade, custom book jackets from her personal book collection.
If you’re like me, books are a well-loved and treasured part of your home. As Cicero said, “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” I often purchase used books, and many times, they come without a dust-jacket, or the cover art on the book isn’t too my taste. I also own multiple paperbacks, some from the 1950’s that are fragile, others that are fairly beaten and dog-eared from being read several times. I decided to repair and make my own covers for my personal collection. I thought that it might be nice to share the results with my fellow book-lovers. This is just a sampling, so if you would like to see some of the other art and book related things that I do, please feel free to look at, or message me on my Facebook Page – Valerie Hoberg Yanes. ENJOY!
