Party in the Park raises funds for Warwick Historical Society

| 07 Aug 2017 | 12:03

    Join the Warwick Historical Society at Party in the Park on Saturday, Aug. 26, from 6 to 9 p.m., as they celebrate Warwick's artists, past and present.
    The society has partnered with local artist Carole Constant who will be exhibiting at the event. Constant's piece, titled "Warwick, New York," has been featured on the invitations, postcards, banners and posters for Party in the Park.
    The limited edition print, done in a whimsical style, celebrates life in an area steeped in history and rustic beauty.
    It begins with a vista as one comes over Mt. Peter and continues past the falls on Cascade Road to downtown Warwick with its lovely historic buildings.
    Beyond that are centuries-old farm houses, barns, apple orchards, fields, cows, horses, all the way to the black dirt district where crops are growing in abundance.
    Constant grew up in northern New Jersey, and after marrying, moved to Warwick, where she and her husband built their home and raised their two sons.
    A graduate of SUNY New Paltz, Carole worked as a commercial artist and also accepted commissions from private individuals. She is now devoted full time to oil paintings of the Hudson Valley and the Great Southwest. To view Constant's work, visit
