An exhibition of landscape painting by fifty-two artists opens this Saturday, July 9 in Beacon, New York in a new exhibit space along the Hudson River. It’s called "The Great Hudson River Exhibition."
My painting, The Clove from Haines Falls will be part of the exhibition. This oil-on-linen painting was used on the cover of American Artist in November, 2006. It was also published in my book Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter as part of a discussion on color gradation.
The view is from the top of Haines Falls, now part of a private community called Twilight Park, looking east across Kaaterskill Clove toward a misty sunrise. The Hudson River appears as a thin sliver of white in the distance.
I only offer a few paintings for sale per year, but I am making this major one available, because a large portion of the proceeds would benefit the Mill Street Loft, which helps young artists in Poughkeepsie. For more information about the painting, the exhibition, or about the opening event, please call Laurie Clark at the Mill Street Loft at 845.471.7477.
On the same day, starting at 1:00, there will also be a big Long Dock Park festival nearby, with free kayak paddling and a Hula Hoop contest. And the galleries in Beacon and the Dia Museum nearby will be open special hours because it's a Second Saturday celebration in Beacon.
Here’s more about the opening event, which Jeanette and I and many of the artists will be attending:
