Midtown Kingston is about to be transformed by two Hudson Valley artists in the 3rd Kingston Artbridge Exhibition. Featuring the work of local artists Gabe Brown (Kingston, NY) and Jean-Marc Superville Sovak (Beacon, NY), this years exhibition was curated by an esteemed panel of curators, including Kelly Kivland, Assistant Curator at the Dia Foundation; Ariel Shanberg, Executive Director of the Center for Photography at Woodstock; local artist Jane Bloodgood-Abrams; Janet Hicks, Founder of One Mile Gallery; and Ken Greene, Managing and Creative Director of the Hudson Valley Seed Library.
The artists works will be reproduced and enlarged, to be displayed for a six month long stint beginning on March 7th, and we are proud to be a sponsor of this fantastic event.
Says ArtBridge’s Executive Director, Stephen Pierson: “We received a record number of submissions this year—over 400!— which is a strong testament to the vibrance of Kingston’s arts scene. We were impressed not only by the number and quality of submissions, but also by the strong support of local officials and businesses, including Kingston Mayor Shayne Gallo, Finkelstein & Partners, and Naccarato insurance. A vibrant arts scene requires both talented artists and municipal support, and Kingston is blessed with both.”
Also, please join us on Wednesday, March 18th, 5.00 – 8.00 pm, to celebrate the grand opening of our new location in Historic Downtown Kingston. Our building has been restored to its late 1800’s grandeur in keeping with other revitalization projects in the area. We will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony from the Ulster County Chamber of Commerce.
