Scenic Hudson at the Hudson Opera House

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsDavid Franck reports from Hudson, NY.
On Saturday, January 19, an artful throng filled the historic hall of The Hudson Opera House for the opening reception of On Time and Place: Celebrating Scenic Hudson’s First 50 Years, an exhibition of photographs that uses the Hudson Valley as its muse. (Gary Schiro, Executive Director of Hudson Opera House pictured left with Didi Barrett, and Bob Burns, director of the Mattatuck Museum. Barrett was on her way to Washington, D.C. for the inauguration festivities.) The Scenic Hudson project received so many worthy applicants, but curator Kate Menconeri and a small board of A-list advisors (like photographer Annie Leibovitz and the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Senior Curator of Photographs Malcom Daniel) culled the entries and chose 34 photographs by twelve artists to hang on display. Nearly 400 additional images are available on interactive iPad kiosks set up throughout the hall. The exhibit will be on display at HOH through February 16. From there it begins its journey, which will conclude at Grand Central Station by year’s end.
