Artists Who Make a Difference 

Every year, Woodmere organizes a gala party in order to recognize individuals who have made a difference in the life of the Museum. This year, our party was virtual and we honored three artists who have volunteered at Woodmere for ten years and longer: Penelope Harris, Peter Paone, and Bill Scott. 

Woodmere offers this exhibition as an expression of gratitude. Harris, Paone, and Scott are all painters, and their drives and interests are different. Click below to learn about their individual talents and achievements.
