Hudson Valley Wine Magazine presents “A Year-long Celebration of Art & Wine in the Hudson Valley,” which will premier at a Grand Event at Lyndhurst, a National Historic Site in Tarrytown, NY in May 2011.
This Celebration “pairs” professional Hudson Valley artists with select Hudson Valley wineries and vineyards. The jury-selected group of artists will be creating, in their own chosen medium, a wine- or vineyard-inspired artwork by partnering with a specific Hudson Valley winery. The artists and wineries will be featured throughout the year in various promotions and press events, and will exhibit for the first time at the Grand Art & Wine event on May 21, 2011.
The exhibit will then travel to several art galleries located in the Hudson Valley, including “M Gallery” in Catskill, and “Paul Gould Art Gallery” in Cornwall.
“The goal of this very timely, year-long celebration is to enhance the Hudson Valley’s recognition as a destination for art, wine and cultural experiences,” says Linda Pierro, managing editor for Hudson Valley Wine Magazine. “We will be promoting Hudson Valley artists, wineries, galleries, and historic sites to a wine- and art-loving audience through this year-long “Celebration.”
The Grand Celebration of Art and Wine event will feature a Grand Tasting of the Hudson Valley’s artfully-crafted wines and gourmet food. Attendees can view the unique gallery of wine-inspired art by some of the Valley’s most acclaimed artists. The event will be a partnership between Hudson Valley Wine Magazine, and Lyndhurst, a National Historic Trust, to benefit educational and cultural programs. Lyndhurst, overlooking the Hudson River in Tarrytown, is a premier example of American Romanticism that was born in the Hudson Valley, and that also found its expression in the Hudson River School of painting, America’s first recognized art movement.
