The re:TREE Exhibit Pops Up In Kinderhook

Amy Krzanik reports from Kinderhook. As has plagued many downtown areas across the region, the loss of trees due to age, disease, salt and severe weather had become a problem in Kinderhook’s business district. Replacing them is costly, but has been no deterrent to the generous residents of this small village. As part of the fundraising for the venture, Renee Shur, Director of Economic Development for Kinderhook, has brought together 40 tree-themed works by 26 regional artists selected by Carrie Haddad of Hudson’s Carrie Haddad Gallery in an exhibition called re:TREE. The exhibit, located at 3 Broad Street on the village green, opened with a packed reception on Saturday evening, November 29. A portion of the sales will be donated by the participating artists to the Kinderhook Tree Fund. The exhibit will be up for the next two weekends from Noon-4 p.m., and from 5:30-8:30 p.m. during the town’s popular Candlelight Night on December 12 when the entire village will be lit up and special programs will be on throughout the business district.
