FIRST ANNUAL OPEN STUDIO HUDSON 2019
SAT, OCT 12 – SUN, OCT 13, 2019, NOON – 6 PM
CLOSING RECEPTION: OCT 13, 7 – 9 PM, TSL
OPEN STUDIO HUDSON 2019 celebrates the vibrant and talented community of artists and artisans in Hudson, New York. Recently ranked sixth for it’s “arts vibrancy” among small communities nationwide by The National Center for Arts Research, Hudson’s creative economy has been a key factor in its current economic growth and booming tourism industry. Surprisingly despite these statistics, Hudson has not hosted an Artist’s Open Studio tour since 2012.
The FIRST ANNUAL OPEN STUDIO HUDSON 2019 is a self-guided tour of 40 local artist’s studios, taking place on Columbus Day Weekend – Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13. This city-wide event is free and open to the public from noon – 6:00 pm. Area artists working in a wide range of mediums including painting, sculpture, design, photography and printmaking will be participating in Open Studio Hudson. Open Studio Hudson is funded in part by a Grant from The Arts & Entertainment Committee/Tourism Board from the City of Hudson.
The closing reception for artists and visitors will take place at Time & Space Limited, on Sunday, October 13 at 7:00 pm. The reception is sponsored by TSL, a major supporter of culture and the arts in Hudson for over 20 years. At the closing reception, photographer David McIntyre will showcase a selection of photos of Open Studio Hudson’s participating artists as part of his Hudson Portrait Pop-Up project.
The weekend will enable both casual art enthusiasts, as well as serious collectors to explore and experience the artistic process at their own pace.
