CPW is about to renovate its darkroom, with a scheduled completion of December 2017. This project is made possible in part through support from the County of Ulster’s Ulster County Cultural Services & Promotion Fund administered by ARTS MID-HUDSON. We thank the county and Arts Mid-Hudson for their generous support.
