Thought of Home: Photographs from the Center for Photography at Woodstock Permanent Collection is curated by Wayne Lempka and is on view at SUNY New Paltz until March 18, 2011.

This is a local exhibition of photographs that is not to be missed. The Center for Photography at Woodstock and the Dorsky are two of the most valuable photographic resources in the Hudson Valley. CPW's collection is held in the Dorsky Museum's archive and is accessable for educational use. The collection consists of roughly 1500 pieces.

about the exhibition, from the website:
What is inside our homes is in some ways more important than what is on the outside. The objects we live with – furniture, rugs, art works, and knick knacks – support not just a sense of one’s identity but the identity of others who reside with us. These objects, and those included outside our front and back doors, are documented by each photographer with the intent to connect us to one another, to eliminate the sense of loneliness and act as a visual investigation of beauty, personal narrative, and memory.

Wednesday – Sunday: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
