Opening Reception: The Old Croton Aqueduct in Art
Join us to celebrate the opening of our newest exhibition at the Keeper's House and to hear a talk by Cornelia Cotton
Refreshments will be served
Long-time supporter and member Cornelia Cotton has generously allowed us to exhibit a small portion of her huge collection of Old Croton Aqueduct-related graphics and photography.
Cornelia Cotton opened an art gallery in Croton-on-Hudson in 1979. One of the earliest gallery shows was called "Croton Water" -- the first time when prints, maps, and ephemera of the Old Croton Aqueduct were shown as an art exhibit. Cornelia was active on behalf of the Aqueduct early on, and after FOCA was founded she served on its board for many years.
She has worked as a portrait photographer, is a lifelong singer, and has won recognition as a historian and writer. She is the mother of three daughters and the grandmother of three grandsons.
