St. Agnes Library Showcases Peter Salwen’s City Paintings

Peter Salwen’s paintings, which often showcase local streetscapes or nature scenes, are on view through the end of the month at St. Agnes Library at 444 Amsterdam Avenue between 81st and 82nd. The show is called “The City and Its People” and features about 20 paintings. It will be up through December 31.
