Art & Soul Exhibit Now Open at Hudson Hall

By Reggie Madison

Hudson Hall is hosting ‘Art & Soul’, a group show & intentional listening installation curated by Reggie Madison.

For artist and curator Reginald Madison, music and the creative process are inextricably connected. “Music always inspires me,” he says. “I would be totally lost without it.” In this special Hudson Jazz Festival group exhibition, Madison has invited his friends and neighbors to contribute their own visual solos. Each piece chosen is a riff on their own body of work, which together sing a song of an artistic community inextricably connected in a time of global anxiety and collective isolation.

Hudson Hall’s first floor galleries are alive and filled with new artwork and sculptures, including works from curator Reggie Madison,  David Hammons, Bijan Mahmoodi, Marlene Marshall, Kris Perry, Richard Sandler, Tschabalala Self, and Kianja Strobert.

Visit HudsonHall.org for more on the featured artists.

DATE/TIME: Fridays – Sundays, until December 20, 2020 / 1 – 5pm
Timed entry on the hour. Reservations only, 20 reservations max/hour.

COST: Free

LOCATION: Hudson Hall
327 Warren St, Hudson, NY 12534

Chatham Art Scene, New Gallery Opening – Gallery@Chatham

There’s a new art gallery in Chatham village! The Gallery@Chatham, an extension of Gallery@Rhinebeck, will officially open to the public on Saturday, June 2. The gallery was founded by Pat D’Antonio, executive director of the Gallery@Rhinebeck, and will follow the successful model of the Rhinebeck location. This unique and innovative, nonprofit venue will feature a rotating collection from local artists. The gallery will also host community events, and serve as a platform for member-driven volunteer efforts throughout the community.

According to D’Antonio, “The Gallery@Rhinebeck has been a huge hit; the model brings tremendous value to locals and tourists. We are really excited to set up the same thing in Chatham, and in other Hudson Valley towns and villages as well in the near future. With our combination of high-end local art, community outreach initiatives, and our Hudson Valley Celebrity Series events, there’s really something for everyone to experience. We’re a nonprofit public service organization, a win for all involved. We give artists a chance to get much-deserved exposure while also giving back to the community.”

D’Antonio continued, “We were looking to expand into other parts of the Hudson Valley and hadn’t thought of going as far north as Chatham, but after meeting Melissa Pollack and some of the artists from Creative Columbia, we felt compelled to make it happen.”

Pollack, a local designer and supporter of the arts in Chatham, is a big Chatham booster, very down-to-earth, and realizes the work required to get something like this done. She agreed to join our board along with local artist Nancy Rutter.”

According to D’Antonio, Creative Columbia has also been instrumental in the Gallery@Chatham project. He shares: “Creative Columbia is kind of a social group that gets together once a month for a dinner and discussion about what’s going on with art in the area. Recently, Carl Berg, a local photographer, spoke up and told everyone that there was a great gallery space in Chatham coming on the market. He said something to the affect that the group should take the lease and form their own gallery. Another member of Creative Columbia, Gerard Seligman, who is also a member of gallery@rhinebeck, responded by saying, ‘I know the guy to call.’”

I stopped by Gallery@Chatham for an early look at some of the artists’ works on display. To see the full list of Current Artists, visit GalleryChatham.org/pages/artists
