    THE BORSCHT BELT MARISA SCHEINFELD TUESDAY, JANUARY 22 through FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22

    Based on her widely acclaimed book, The Borscht Belt: Revisiting the Remains of America’s Jewish Vacationland, this traveling exhibition features Marisa Scheinfeld’s large-scale color photographs of the abandoned remains of once famous resort hotels of the Catskill Mountain region. Scheinfeld’s photographs have been exhibited widely, and her work has been featured in numerous publications, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Slate Magazine, and American Photography. She is also an adjunct instructor at Westchester Community College.

    DEEP SKIN CYNTHIA LIN MONDAY, MARCH 4 through FRIDAY, APRIL 12

    This exhibition will feature paintings, drawings, and prints by Cynthia Lin that originate from images of skin. Ranging from up-close human surfaces to faraway planet topographies, the work deploys various “lenses” to see “factual“ digital scans re-interpreted through painting processes that engage material, gesture, and time. Each step accumulates

    unpredictable events shaped by the personal experience of an Asian-American constructing her “in-between“ space within a global culture. Lin is a Guggenheim fellow, NYFA Finalist, and Associate Professor and Area Coordinator of Painting and Drawing at SUNY Purchase College.

    STUDENT SHOW MONDAY, APRIL 29 through FRIDAY, MAY 3

    This exhibition presents selected student works from Visual Arts curriculum classes. Drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, and digital media are featured.

    Westchester Community College offers a number of academic programs in the arts. They include dance, drama, film, music (vocal, instrumental, computer-engineered) and visual/computer art classes. Smart Arts programming enriches the classes as

    students are given opportunities to meet guest artists up close and personal, as well as participate in residency custom-designed outreach activities.
