Artist Stacey Creem's 'Victory Farmers' exhibit FREE

This May, the Oresman Gallery at the Larchmont Public Library in Larchmont, NY, will showcase the work of artist Stacey Creem in the “Victory Farmers” exhibit, an amalgamation of large and small oil paintings and photographs depicting men and women of Larchmont and Mamaroneck and their efforts in a community project sponsored by Victory Farms at the Grange. This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by ArtsWestchester. “Victory Farmers” highlights community members who, last year, took part in a local effort to plant home vegetable gardens and donate the produce to the Larchmont Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force. The portraits tell a story of hope and inspiration, and an urgency to preserve the land and feed each other. Part of the proceeds from the sale of Creem’s artwork will benefit the Task Force.
