November 1 – January 3
Special Reception: Thursday, December 6, 5:30-7:30 pm
Found objects (sometimes referred to by the French term for found object ‘objet trouvé’) may be put on a shelf and treated as works of art in themselves, as well as providing inspiration for the artist. Found objects may also be modified by the artist and presented as art, either more or less intact as in the dada and surrealist artist Marcel Duchamp’s readymades, or as part of an assemblage.
This exhibit is part of First Thursday Gallery Hop sponsored by the Yonkers Gallery Group, an alliance of galleries including Blue Door Art Center, Friends of Philipse Manor Hall, Urban Studio Unbound (US+U), and Yonkers Riverfront Library. Local restaurants are offering a 10% food and drink discount on April 5 for gallery attendees. Coupons can be picked up at any of the four galleries.
January 10 – February 25: Of Kings and Queens
March 7 – April 22: Womantide

The Riverfront Yonkers Public Library in downtown Yonkers has long been the cultural center for the arts in Yonkers. The gallery exhibits contemporary, nationally and internationally acclaimed artwork. The mission of the gallery is to present a diverse and balanced schedule of exhibits of high caliber, progressive artwork and related programs not frequently seen in Yonkers and surrounding communities. The exhibit schedule is managed by a committee that is appointed by the library director. Haifa Bint-Kadi is the curator for the gallery and head of this committee.
