The Saugerties Public Library is presenting Grey Ivor Morris “Artists & Writers: Portraits in Pencil” from January 2 through February 28. Faces as diverse as Bob Dylan, Jean-Michel Basquiat, William Burroughs and James Baldwin will be represented in this show.

His street art has been featured for the past few summers in the village of Saugerties. He works in mosaics, acrylics, photography and his medium of choice for portraits-colored pencil.
