(New Rochelle, NY) -- Original art by three of New Rochelle’s most famous artists and illustrators—Norman Rockwell, Joseph Leyendecker and Walter Beach Humphrey—will be featured in the centennial year exhibition of the The New Rochelle Art Association (NRAA) held in the Mooney Center Gallery on the Main Campus of The College of New Rochelle. This centennial show opens on June 16, 2012, and closes on July 9, 2012. A public reception will be on Sunday, June 24, 2012, from 2-4 p.m. in the Mooney Center.
This Then and Now exhibit features work by current members juxtaposed with the available work by its original members. The exhibit explores the parallel developments of the arts as they apply to past and present, local as well as nationwide. In addition, a video including reminiscences of senior members will be shown.
