Crowds Travel To Stair Galleries For Hermes Mallea’s ‘Escape’

Lisa Green reports from Hudson. It was a perfect antidote to the weekend after the Thanksgiving snowstorm: a booksigning for Hermes Mallea’s second outrageously beautiful book, Escape: The Heyday of Caribbean Glamour. On Saturday, November 29, the Stair Galleries enhanced its already magnificently adorned walls (filled with works from the December 6 Modern and Contemporary Fine and Decorative Arts auction) with Escape and its photos of the warm-weather destinations, lavish, tropical beach parties and costume balls at fairy-tale private estates. A line of well wishers (many of them artists) waited for the author’s inscription on their copy (provided by Hudson City Books) while others enjoyed nibbles and wine. At left, Marilyn Bethany, one of Rural Intelligence’s founding editors, shares a laugh with the author. Mallea is an architect and partner of M(Group), a design firm based in New York, and has a home in Columbia County.
