Twenty-four paintings and three photographs created by members of the Olive Senior Art Class are on display at the Catskill Watershed Corporation at 905 Main St. in Margaretville.

The work will be displayed through the end of April and can be seen weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Senior Art Class, sponsored by the Town of Olive, was created five years ago. A dozen artists, led by Judith Boggess, have been meeting Monday mornings at the Reservoir Methodist Church. A sampling of the work of each participant is on display in the show.

According to a media release, the paintings “extol the beauty of Olive, Ulster County and beyond. Living in the Catskills provides the artist with an endless source of inspiring landscapes.”

Some of the painting subjects include the Ashokan Reservoir, the Esopus Creek, Kenozia Lake (also known as Temple’s Pond) and High Point.

Artists featured in the show include Evelyn Konjas, Lois Ostapzuk, Christine Benardcik, Jane McCabe, Sue Cocozza, Carol LaMonda, Ann Fitzsimmons, Judith Boggess and Gert Kaiser.

The Catskill Watershed Corporation is a nonprofit, local development corporation responsible for several environmental protection, economic development and education programs in the five-county New York City Watershed west of the Hudson River.
