New Rochelle Artists to Be Featured in Exhibit

The Thomas Paine National Historical Building, recently designated as a national landmark, will be opening its doors to the New Rochelle Art Association for an art exhibit featuring work by five local artists. The exhibit is scheduled for Wednesday, September 2, through Sunday, September 6, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.. Closed on Labor Day, September 7, the exhibit will resume on Tuesday, September 8, and run for the remainder of that week during the same hours. On each day, one of the exhibiting artists will be available to explain the works and answer questions. Masks and social distancing will be observed.

Fred Spinowitz, an accomplished artist and member of YINR, explained that participating artists were asked to explore some of the simple but brilliant truths that Paine expressed in his writings. “There is no more poignant time that needs remedy and relief from our pandemic than right now. It is with a sigh of relief that we are reminded of the simple truths of Thomas Paine through the art of local artists.” Spinowitz was happy to be included in this multifaceted history. Spinowitz’s painting, “Peace,” in oil and acrylic, is featured in the exhibit.

The building is located at 983 North Avenue.
