Description:Rebecca Andre’s “Catskills Light” at the CWC in Margaretville
 
MARGARETVILLE, N.Y., July 17, 2019– Catskill seasonal photographs by Rebecca Andre are now on display at the Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC) in Margaretville. The public is welcome to view the display “Catskills Light,” at the CWC, 905 Main Street, weekdays from 8 to 4:30 (closed September 2). The show will be up through September 13.
 
This show includes 19 photographs, woven with poetry inspired by the images Andre captures with her lens. Her poetry demonstrates her deep love for the Catskill Mountains and the people who live here. All of the work is for sale.
 
Andre was born and raised on farms outside Baltimore. She is now a Halcottsville resident and owns Mountain Girl Photography and Design. She has worked as a reporter for the Watershed Post, as food and lodging writer for Kaatskill Life, and other Catskill travel guides, along with being published in Catskill Made and Chronogram. Rebecca is also the Social Media Marketing Director for Verglas Media.
 
In 2013 Rebecca settled in Delaware County with her husband Mark and their daughter Isabella. Since then she has combined poems with images, as in her 2017, “In Bloom” exhibition at the Commons Gallery in Margaretville, where her works shared the walls with painters Alix Hallman Travis and Mary Davis. During the 2018 AMR Studio Tour, Rebecca again presented her photography woven with poetry.
 
Rebecca and her family have become well known, permanent transplants to the Catskills, the one place she feels most like home.
 
The CWC is a non-profit, Local Development Corporation responsible for several environmental protection, economic development and education programs in the New York City Watershed West of the Hudson River. FMI: 845-586-1400. www.cwconline.org
