City Hall's Link Gallery is currently hosting "Art Work Then and Now," a retrospective showcase of the work of Mollie Wolf. The Rochester based artist and educator taught for the Rochester City School District as well as the Memorial Art Gallery's Creative Workshop, and with Young Audiences of Rochester. Her work has been widely exhibited at various cultural and educational institutions around town as well as many national venues, and her portrait of Louise Slaughter was displayed in Slaughter's congressional office in Washington during the congresswoman's lifetime.

Anthony neighborhoods. The exhibit at Link Gallery spans more than 60 years of Wolf's work, and features a wide range of media, from painting to sculpture, felting, and jewelry.
