Marcy B. Freedman may be best known as a performance artist, but she will be exposing other sides of her artistic life during this year’s Open Studios event in Peekskill. Freedman’s studio, located at 1006 Brown St. #203, will be open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. on June 6 and 7.

Visitors will discover a wide range of artworks on display, from abstract collages and drawings to Polaroid photography and small sculptures, as well as a “blow-out sale” of artworks. The artist will be on-site to explain the ways in which her works have been designed to “please the eye and tease the brain.”

Simultaneously, Freedman’s latest collaborative video project, called The White Room, will be on view at 1008 Main St. in a newly renovated building called the Flatz. This piece was created by Freedman and her long-time video partner, Gene Panczenko. When working together, the two artists are known as GeneFree.
