Jeffersonville, NY (September 21, 2018) Jeff Bank and Catskill Art Society (CAS) held the 10th annual photo contest earlier this year and selected 13 entries to be featured in the 2019 Jeff Bank Calendar. In celebration of the calendar’s 10th Anniversary, a special edition was created, Sullivan County Through The Eyes Of Our Students. This year’s calendar will feature photos submitted by our local students. On Friday, October 12, 2018 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm a reception will be held at the CAS Arts Center, 48 Main Street, Livingston Manor, NY to display the winning photographs. The photographers will be on hand, light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend. The 2019 Jeff Bank Calendars will be available for a suggested $5 donation to CAS.

Sullivan County’s beauty is well represented in the 2019 Jeff Bank Calendar by the work of this year’s winning photographers: Ariana AuClair, Faakirah Brimfield, Luke DelValle, Lucia Gonzalez, Cary Ihlefeldt, Emily Kinne, Rory Magie, Gabriela Nolan, Brooke Roth, and Trish Scarlett.

The Jeff Bank photo contest and calendar initiative is an ongoing partnership between CAS and Jeff Bank. This project was first started by Jeff Bank in 2009 as a way of offering financial support to the local arts community and to give talented photographers a venue to share their work with the public. The calendar has the added benefit of promoting the scenic beauty of the Hudson Valley to local residents as well as area visitors. The 2019 calendars will be available at Jeff Bank’s twelve branches beginning October 15, 2018.
