As of April 23, 2014, I have a show in the Poughkeepsie Common Council Chamber, 3rd Floor of City Hall, 62 Market Street in Poughkeepsie, NY running for approximately 2 months. The opening reception was quite successful on Wednesday, 5:30-6:30 p.m. prior to the Common Council Meeting. The room is open 9-5, Monday - Friday and has 10 canvas wraps of mine on display, most of which are of Poughkeepsie and all of which were taken in the beautiful mid-Hudson Valley. This exhibition represents the first time an artist has been invited to display their artwork in the Council Chamber, and it heralds a new ongoing program of local artists' work being exhibited there. This program, a collaboration between Arts Mid-Hudson and the Poughkeepsie Common Council, is a great step forward for art in Poughkeepsie.
"Follow the Wild Things"
This member show at ACHP is going strong, running March 29 through May 11, 2014 with the work of 26 artists, including myself, in many media including painting, sculpture, photography, stained glass, ceramics, woodworking and more. My work has been included in all ACHP's shows since their ribbon-cutting in September, 2012. I am the secretary for this group, a warm and mutually inspiring artistic family that welcomes new visitors. Regular warm-weather hours: 11-7, Thursday through Sunday except the "between shows" hanging week. Each show consists of fresh art from members and occasional guest featured artists, and runs 6 weeks.
Music (and spoken word) night at the gallery is the second Thursday of each month, 6:30 - 9:30 pm. New performers welcome; contact Liz at 914-456-6700 for information. The next music night will be on May 8, 2014.
The next scheduled all-member art show will be entitled "Bloom" and will open with a reception on May 16 at 6 pm, to run through June 29.
