The exhibition has been organized and curated by Luis Perelman with the assistance of three Yonkers artists - Gino Civale, Marianne Winstanley and Kathy Yacoe Skura under the auspices of Yonkers Arts.

Through the last twenty five years, various local arts organizations, including Art on Main Street/Yonkers, The Blue Boor Artist Association, The West Room Gallery (part of the Yonkers Board of Education Cultural Arts programs) and the Yonkers Public Libraries have made it possible for local artists to display their works, often for the first time.  Over two hundred visual artists live or work in Yonkers, many of them working in YOHO, the former Alexander Carpet Mill in Nepperhan Valley.
The fourth Yonkers Artist showcase at the Riverfront Library marks the existence of a group of remarkable artists in Yonkers, showing a variety and creativity comparable to what is found in New York City.  The curators have selected not only contemporary painting and sculpture but also traditional photography and figurative works.  The Library patrons will see an extraordinary selection of artworks, and as well as quality and variety, in the beautiful 2,500 square feet of exhibition space at the fourth floor of the Library.  Artists included are: Philip Anderson, Vinnie Bagwell,  Kathleen Benton, Haifa Bint-Kadi, Jef Campion, Beth Carney, Gino Civale, Julie Cousens, Elizabeth de Bethune, Pete Eagleton, Alex Ebel, Susan Edelson, Vivian Lee Eun, David Fischweicher, Sheila Fischweicher, Connie Freid, Diane Mitchell and Marko Gosar, Paul Greco, Richard Haas,  Susan Hoetzel, Joan Jennings, Satish Joshi, Omar Kharem, Jacqueline Lorieo, Linda Mendelson, Leslie Miller, Carole Naggar, Marvin Oberman,Luis Perelman, Librado Romero, Aija Sears, Barbara Segal, Nat Mayer Shapiro, Maxine Short, Arline Simon, Arle Sklar-Weinstein, Kathy Yacoe Skura, Cecily Spitzer, Paulo Suzuki, Jonathan Wallen, and others
