Hudson Hall Reopening w/ Camille Thurman & The Darrell Green Trio, May 29

Hudson Hall is opening wide the doors and windows and inviting our community back for what promises to be an exhilarating celebration of the power of the arts to heal, inspire, delight, and reconnect. The season kicks off this weekend with Camille Thurman & The Darrell Green Trio.

When Camille Thurman is not touring with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, she’s on the road leading her band, The Camille Thurman Quartet and collaborating as a co-bandleader with the Darrell Green Trio. As a composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and unique interpreter of the jazz tradition, she is quickly becoming one of the standard-bearers for the form, making a dynamic contribution to the legacy of jazz while paying tribute to its heroes. In her Hudson Hall debut, Camille is joined by the Darrell Green Trio, featuring Anthony Wonsey on piano, Tom DiCarlo on bass, and Darrell Green on drums.

Hudson Winter Walk 2020: 20 Days of Festive Cheer

Winter Walk is an annual Hudson celebration that in normal years brings upwards of 20,000 people to town. For the past 23 years, Hudson Hall has produced Winter Walk, and what began as a one-block party grew into Hudson’s most colorful event of the year and an important evening of trade for many local shops and restaurants.  In 2020, we need Winter Walk more than ever. Our local businesses need support, and we know our community needs extra cheer and joy.

Instead of closing off Warren Street for a large celebration involving tens of thousands people on a single evening, Winter Walk 2020 begins on Saturday, December 5 and continues through the month of December.

Find yourself a suitable holiday mask and get ready to enjoy the warmth and excitement of the holidays in Hudson, while staying safe and distanced, during Winter Walk 2020: The Hudson Safe Edition.

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

Hudson Hall Exhibition, Rodney Greenblat: ‘Something to Look Forward to’

Photo by Alon Koppel

Hudson Hall presents Rodney Greenblat: ‘Something to Look Forward to’ Exhibition now to August 23. Rodney Alan Greenblat’s aptly-titled, Something to Look Forward to, is an enjoyable, whimsical and engaging collection of new and archival works bursting with color and underpinned with wit and charm.

In Something to Look Forward to, the artist presents us with a vision of his own wonderland future; a land of brightly colored modernist forms populated with ladybugs, friendly robots and giant emblematic cats watched over by “Lemon Eye”- a mystical and beneficial Zen deity who’s image is in almost every work. Greenblat offers us an antidote to the pessimism, division, and dangers of today: the possibility of optimism, wholeness and safety. Familiar and wildly imaginative at the same time, the paintings and constructions celebrate the ability we all have to re-imagine our world. 

DATE/TIME: Until August 23, 2020
Friday, 1 – 5pm, Saturday & Sunday, 1 – 4pm
(Timed entry on the hour. 10 reservations max/hour).
