Week of May 10. 2015 – Middleburgh Library
5/2 to 5/15 – Art at the Library – In the Tech Room - Join us for a photographic journey of Middleburgh and Schoharie County with artist Voitek Moszynski.

His photographs have been exhibited in numerous galleries. All of his photographs are processed by him in his own laboratory.
