Art Gallery


NEO Teen Art Showcase
June 27 – July 22

In partnership with curator Haifa Bint-Kadi and with the support of the Yonkers Public Library and The Foundation for the Yonkers Public Library, along with generous support from Con Edison, a group of teens from all over the City of Yonkers have been meeting in the 4th floor gallery at the Riverfront Library every Friday.

They wanted to create a safe space to learn about and create art, and to celebrate their differences. They have studied visual and textile art and gone on field trips to New York City, and they’ve learned the inner workings of a gallery. They have met and interacted with local artists who volunteered their time and love to support these creative teens by teaching them their art form. The teens call themselves NEO.  They’ve worked hard to design an amazing exhibit and we hope you can join us to celebrate these young artists with their friends and family.

Due to the First Thursday of July landing on the 4th of July, there will be no First Thursday Gallery Hop in July. We will welcome you back when Gallery Hop resumes on August 1st.



Stay tuned for the August photography show, “A Different Lens”

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 gallery exhibits contemporary, nationally and internationally acclaimed artwork.
