(Added photos of finished piece!)
So I have was invited to participate in Hudson Fulton: take two. Here is the copy for the show:
Memorabilia from the 1909 Hudson-Fulton celebration was the inspiration for 10 artists whose exhibit of new work opens on May 2 (a Saturday) in the Friends of Historic Kingston Gallery.
“Hudson-Fulton: Take Two” features painting, sculpture, photography, fiber, metal, jewelry and prose, inspired by 1909 memorabilia drawn from Friends of Historic Kingston archives and the John F. Matthews Collection. The items from 1909 are included in the exhibit so that visitors can link the artifacts with the contemporary works
Artist and Friends of Historic Kingston Board Member Ken Gray came up with the idea for the exhibit as the preservation organization’s contribution to the 2009 Hudson-Fulton Quadricentennial Celebration. Gray is also the exhibit curator.
Anyhoo I am only halfway finished with my piece. I silhouetted the outline of the Hudson River with Henry Hudson's ship the "Halfmoon". Another round of sticking on stickers tomorrow. I will try and post some sneak peaks later. If you are in the area come to the Opening this Saturday (May 2nd at the Friends of Historic Kingston Gallery, located on the corner of Wall and Main Streets in Kingston's Stockade National Historic District.)
