Ann Hickey

Ann Hickey

Our cocktail party was held at The View Sept. 18, 2014. This event served the dual purpose of honoring Ann Hickey for her lifetime of service to Piermont, including ten years (and counting!) as a Library Trustee and raising funds for an organization dear to her heart, The Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library.

We thank our friends at The View for helping us put together such a lovely evening. We also thank Ned Kelly & Co. for donating a beautiful floral arrangement.

Library Wins Ezra Jack Keats Minigrant »

Posted: Mon, Aug 18, 2014

The Library's art teacher, Alexis Starke, is one of 60 teachers and librarians across 27 states who have been awarded an Ezra Jack Keats Minigrant to help bring their inventive programs to students. To receive this award, the educators applied for funding to implement specific programs that foster creative expression, working together and interaction with a diverse community.

Alexis Starke will use her grant to teach a special series of art classes for kids in grades 4 - 8 this fall at the Library, Artists-in-Residence at the Piermont Library and Piermont Marsh. Students will become Artists-in-Residence, exploring the Piermont Marsh, Sparkill Creek, and Hudson River, taking photographs and sketching along the way. They will then use the photographs and sketches as references for a number of printmaking projects using monotype, blockprinting, and photo-transfer. Approximately 11,000 years old, the 1000-acre Piermont Marsh is an ecologically unique component of the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve. The grant from the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation will provide students with cameras, monotype gel printing plates, block printing carving tools, brayers and printing inks. The class will culminate with an exhibit of the students' work in the Library Gallery.
