The Hastings-on-Hudson Village Arts Commission, in partnership with the Newington-Cropsey Foundation, presents The River Flows Both Ways, a contemporary and representational art exhibition that celebrates the enduring and ever-renewing romance with the Hudson River, muse to countless explorers, writers and artists. The show is an homage to Hastings’ special connection to the prominent Hudson River School landscape artist Jasper Francis Cropsey, who lived and worked in Hastings during the final years of his career.
Opening Reception: September 6, 6-8 pm, Hastings Village Hall, 7 Maple Avenue, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY. Free and open to the public.
This juried exhibit showcases artistic responses to the river through thirty pieces by twenty-nine living artists working in a variety of media: painting, collage, textiles, printmaking, photography, sculpture and watercolors.
Alongside these works in the same gallery will be, in words and images, a narrative of the life and art of Cropsey, now firmly regarded as one of the leading lights of the Hudson River School.
“The river that flows two ways,” refers to Mahicantuck, the Native American name for the Hudson.
Free, open to the public
