NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - A local artist is looking for the help of some of New Rochelle’s most creative minds as he puts together a gallery of works exploring the artistic side of the forthcoming downtown redevelopment.

Mount Vernon artist Jesse Sanchez is teaming with the New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) to curate a show that is loaded with art that expresses local sentiment about the “largest and most ambitious redevelopment in city history.”

Between 3 and 7 p.m., on Wednesday, Aug. 5, Sanchez will be at 5 Anderson St. in downtown New Rochelle to accept local pieces for the event. Art must be dropped off presentation ready, wired if 2-D, with firm base if 3-D.

When the artists drop off their submissions, a team consisting of Sanchez, David Krinick of Mesh Print Studio and art educator Alexi Putsch Brock will judge the pieces, based on relevance and overall competence to determine which will be featured in the gallery this month.

"I know it is short notice. I am looking for art that expresses your feelings about the forthcoming redevelopment," Sanchez said when announcing the gallery. "Images in any medium are acceptable. Work submitted need not be representational of New Rochelle but must relate to the theme in some manner."

The Arts at 5 Anderson show will run through the month of August at the recently remodeled luxury building. Artists with questions can contact Sanchez at (914) 409-7300 or Ralph DiBart at (914) 960-1460.
