The 2019 edition of the Hudson Valley Artists series is titled Madness in Vegetables: Hudson Valley Artists 2019. It calls for works that address the political and civic implications of choosing a rural life; the enticing beauty and repellant brutality of nature; our ever-changing climate; the wild character of plants, gardens, forests, and fauna; the relevance, power and forms of anthropomorphic mythmaking; and poetic and fantastical interpretations of the woodlands.

Exhibiting artists will be:

Bob Barry | Julie Evans | Mara Held | Virginia Lavado | Elisa Lendvay | Scott Serrano | Claudia McNulty | David Nyzio | Phyllis Gay Palmer | Libby Paloma | Lauren Piperno | Jackie Shatz | Linda Stillman | Jean-Marc Superville Sovak |Christina Tenaglia / Scrap Wrenn / Roberta Ziemba


Tonalism: Pathway from the Hudson River School to Modern Art

Tonalism has long been considered a conservative late 19th-century approach to painting, often discussed as the antithesis to Impressionism.  Recent publications have begun to reconsider Tonalism as innovative in its approach to representation both conceptually and as realized, an approach that helped to lay the groundwork for modernism and contemporary art.  This exhibition will reposition Tonalism in this new context.

Many of the works included in this exhibition will be loaned by private collectors, thereby offering viewers the chance to see works that are not in the public domain.
