Friday, November 4
6 PM - Reception for Artist of the Month TERRENCE FINE
7 PM - Art Talk - Laura Vookles,Chair of the Curatorial Department at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, shares her insights about the current Hopper’s Hudson exhibition and the collections she curates. In the 1990s, the Hudson River Museum mounted an educational display called “The Visitor in the Landscape,” which instituted a new way of looking at the full range of its landscape collections. Considering the visitor in the landscape brings pertinent questions to all these artworks. The artist is a visitor when setting up an easel or tripod by the river, but so are we—whether enjoying nature outside, or vicariously through their art.
