Hudson River Designs jewelry and picnic baskets at Handmade in America:Artisans Along Main Street in Valatie

Tomorrow I will be exhibiting my jewelry and picnic baskets at Handmade in America: Artists Along Main Street in Valatie, NY. I’m excited seeing some of the other talented artists and food producers that will be there. In addition to the artisans, authors, and entertainment on Main Street, there will be an exhibition of prints made from glass plate negatives of Valatie scenes, which were recently donated to the Columbia County Historical Society.
11am-5pm for both events, please come check them out if you are in the area! My shop, Hudson River Designs, will be located in front of Beaver Mill Antiques, next to Great Finds.

Stumbled upon this interesting gem in Cohoes. Must do more research.

I rather like this part of the temporary art shuffle that is going on now at the Empire State Plaza. They go well together. (Does stacking two paintings together count as an assemblage? Found art?)

I had an exploring kind of lunch break today. A little fresh air and a little great art are refreshing before tackling the afternoon tasks.
