The mission of the new CMA Gallery at Mount Saint Mary College is to exhibit professional art and media picked by Mount faculty from among the rising population of artists who live and work in Newburgh, Beacon, and Orange County. The gallery space will feature new focused lighting to highlight the artwork on the first floor of the college’s main academic building.
The next exhibition will be announced at a future date.
