Philmont, NY - On Sunday, March 25, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm, an opening reception will be held for the Free Columbia Art Exhibit, that will run at the Philmont Public Library, 101 Main Street, from March 25 through April 20. Although the training is located in Hillsdale, many of the current year's students live in Philmont. The library has generously offered to host an exhibit.
Works by the current year's students will be displayed in a fashion that reveals the nature of the training. Panels representing training blocks -- Color Moods, Black & White Drawing, Luster & Image Colors, Imagination, Color Perspective & Puppetry -- will show stages in the creative process. Directed by Laura Summer and Nathaniel williams, other faculty include Karen Derreumaux, Henrike Holdrege and Ella Lapoint, along with guest lecturers.
A one-year training, the Free Columbia Art Course is now in its third year of operations, and is committed to creating a free cultural space. The ability to attend the program is not linked to the ability to pay tuition. Free Columbia is currently taking applications for the 2012/13 school year.

The Philmont Library hours are Monday 12-5, and 6-8, Tuesday closed, Wednesday 12-5 and 6-8, Thursday 10-2, Friday 12-5, Saturday 10-2. The Philmont Library is located at 101 Main Street (Route 217) in Philmont, NY.
