Art Gallery


The Wild Side
July 17- August 27, 2018

Reception: August 2, 5:30-7:30 pm

Cityscape with Rose by Jeanne Wilkinson

The Wild Side showcases works from artists that explore how we are still connected to our wild and natural history despite rapid development of cities, technology and human development.  These pieces explore tensions between opposing forces; wild and primitive against domestic and developed, and the underlying tensions that occur.
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.

The Riverfront Art Gallery is located on the 4th floor of the Riverfront Library, the main branch of the Yonkers Public Library. It opened in 2009.  

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.
