In Hudson: McDaris Opens; Habitat for Humanity Celebrates

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings Dale Stewart reports from Hudson.

Hudson was hopping on Saturday, April 21 as several galleries held opening receptions, including Warren Street’s latest venue, Wendy McDaris Fine Art, where the inaugural exhibit featured a solo show of new work by Germantown artist Dawn Breeze (pictured with McDaris, left). Breeze’s paintings, works on paper, and video were completed at Baer, the world-renowned artist residency in Iceland. Lively events continued all the way down Warren and over to Basilica Hudson, where Columbia County Habitat for Humanity held its Builder of the Year Gala, celebrating local honorees Christine Chale of Rapport Meyers LLP, attorneys at law, and the Sidney and Beatrice Albert Foundation.
