BETHEL, NY — Just in time to celebrate our national birthday, “Eagles of the Upper Delaware – and Other Birds of Prey” an exhibit of photographs by Jerry Cohen and woodcarvings by guest artist Paul Stark, will open at the Stray Cat Gallery on Thursday, July 4, with an opening reception on Friday, July 5 from 4 to 7 p.m. The show runs through July 17.

Cohen, an artist in residence at the gallery, writes of his work: “Whether it is the majestic nature of an eagle in flight or the haunting secrets held within an abandoned structure, there is beauty and intrigue everywhere I look.”

Stark’s custom woodcarvings are visible around the grounds—including on a totem pole right outside the gallery and on the dancing cat column in the Saloon across the street—year round; this is an opportunity to view his special flair with eagles.

Regular gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (but will be open until 7 on Friday, July 5), Saturday 10 to 7 p.m. and Sunday 10 to 5 p.m.
