THURSDAY: Westchester Sketchers at the Hudson River Museum


The Hudson River Museum is a preeminent cultural institution in Westchester County and the New York metropolitan area.  Situated on the banks of the Hudson River in Yonkers, New York, the HRM’s mission is to engage, inspire, and connect diverse communities through the power of the arts, sciences, and history.

Current exhibitions include:

Edward Steichen (1879–1973), one of the leading photographers of the twentieth century, spent his early career equally devoted to both painting and photography. This exhibition highlights his most ambitious project as a painter—three large-scale paintings he created on the cusp of World War I as part of a series of seven murals.

During her residency, Khorover will conduct unique, hands-on, upcycling workshops inspired by “Order / Reorder” that spark creativity while contributing to the health of the planet. One of her big projects is to work with the community to create a large-scale, mixed-media art quilt of the Palisades that is made entirely from recycled single-use plastics.

The HRM needs your help gathering materials for Natalya’s workshops!  Please donate soft single-use plastic packaging, clear plastic lids from takeout containers, clear plastic clamshell containers, pull tabs from beverage containers, cardboard cereal boxes, scraps of fabric, ribbon, wrapping paper, and any other hard single-use plastic tidbits. NOTE: You can drop off your donations at the front desk.
Art as both creative output and curated object is in constant dialogue with the past and the present.  This never-ending conversation pushes art into its future, forcing us to continually reimagine how we project a vision of ourselves and the world around us.  Order / Reorder: Experiments with Collections explores approaches to looking at American art that consider expressions of American identity from new perspectives.


Travel back in time to the Gilded Age!  Enjoy a 45-minute guided tour of historic Glenview’s six fully restored period rooms decorated for the holidays.  Advance tickets are strongly encouraged.
