In conjunction with the market, there will be a new, exciting art exhibition opening at the Ann Street Gallery from 6 to 9 PM featuring work by local photographer Dmitri Kasterine. The exhibit inside the gallery is titled People & Places, 1955-2011 and the open air exhibit on the outside wall of the Ritz Theater is titled Newburgh: Portrait of a City. This project is made possible, in part, with funds from Orange County Tourism and the County of Orange. There will be music and food to celebrate the opening of these wonderful exhibits.
