Sneak Preview: How We Live: Part II: An expansion of 'How We Live' reflecting on global artistic visions of need and empathy, political chaos and its repercussions.

We opened our doors in March 2004 and have, for over 16 years, serviced the community of Peekskill, the surrounding region and the greater arts community, nationally and internationally. We have launched over 80 art exhibitions, six major art festivals, and a myriad of education programs.

We look forward to welcoming you in person in the not too distant future!

Please check our web site for updates and a sneak peek at the expanded How We Live' exhibition.

Portfolio Review Day, While we were not able to hold Portfolio Review Day at HVMOCA due to the Pandemic, in person interviews at varied galleries in Manhattan were scheduled so that artists were still able to show their works in person and receive advice on ways of expanding their exhibitions and representation. We thank everyone for their patience. Feedback was very positive, from the reviewers in terms of the quality of works presented and from the reviewees in terms of this having been a valuable experience. We look forward to future portfolio reviews and to servicing the artists' community.

We are grateful to the many gallery owners and directors who have generously agreed to participate, encouraging and supporting artists and HVMOCA during this very trying time. And to our artists, thank you for your patience and may you stay healthy and productive, continuing to produce art and the proliferation of culture and esthetics in a world of challenge.

In the interim, we hope that our members, friends and supporters continue to enjoy our online offerings:
- NEW!! Black History Month, a collaboration between Hudson Valley MOCA and Theatre in Exile
