A New Art Factory

Last Sunday's New York Times had an interesting article about the Lift Trucks Project, a former forklift factory in Croton Falls that has been converted into artists' studios and gallery space. According to the Times, the 5,600 square foot factory was purchased by South Salem resident Tom Christopher, a painter who immediately recognized the structure's artistic potential. The first exhibit, “From a Factory Floor,” highlights the work of silk-screen artist Gary Lichtenstein and shows pieces by 14 artists printed by Mr. Lichtenstein. Works include those by Tom Christopher (bottom left) and Jackie Micheline (bottom right). The exhibition runs through July 12. Lift Trucks Project
