THURSDAY: JOINT Weekday/Westchester event

NYC Urban Sketchers at the Hudson River Museum

Current exhibitions include:

James McElhinney: Discover the Hudson Anew presents the painter’s sketch books and prints related to the River in a comprehensive showing for the first time. A video program, animating turning pages, will allow visitors to see additional sketchbook paintings.
· Bring an orange pen.
· Look closely at how James McElhinney uses the orange pen and try it for yourself.
· Weather permitting we could go outside. If not, there is a good view from the Hudson Riverama exhibit on the lower level. Sketch the river by trying to replicate James' technique and color palette.

Thomas Cole’s Refrain: The Paintings of Catskill Creek This exhibit features 12 original oil paintings by Thomas Cole, regarded as founder of the Hudson River School of Art, as well as works by several other 19-century artists inspired by him, including Frederic Edwin Church, Asher B. Durand, and Charles Herbert Moore.
NOTE: Sketching in this gallery is not permitted, but don't miss the chance to see these wonderful paintings.
