HASBROUCK, NY — The wide range of Peter Sheehan’s art will be on display starting November 3 at the Old Stone House of Hasbrouck, a community-based gallery. The exhibit begins with an opening reception from 1 to 4 p.m. on November 3, including all the makings for a pleasant luncheon.

“It’s my love affair with the land that inspires my art,” says Sheehan, noting that his latest works all bear signs of “the fields, mist, light, trees and stone all around me.”

Sheehan has a Masters of Fine Arts from SUNY New Paltz. For a time, he taught photography and 3-D design. When the state expanded its programming at Wallkill Correctional Facility, Peter ran a woodworking craft shop and instruction in painting and drawing, with several of his prisoner-students exhibiting in a statewide show titled “Corrections on Canvas.”

The Old Stone House of Hasbrouck is at 282 Hasbrouck Rd., in the wider community of Fallsburg, NY. For driving directions and more information, visit www.TheOldStoneHouse OfHabrouck.org.
