THURSDAY, November 30, 2023: Westchester Sketchers at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers


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:
Drawn from the private collection of Priscila and Alvin Hudgins III, Kindred Worlds reveals the couple’s deep and enduring devotion to the arts—not solely as a mode of creative expression but also as an intimate form of world-making. Includes artistic expressions from Derrick Adams, Jordan Casteel, David Hammons, Naudine Pierre, Bony Ramírez, and more talents.

From Julie Buffalohead and Kiki Smith to Walton Ford and James Prosek, the artists in this exhibition represent another stage in the evolution of animal art.

The power of an artwork is often amplified when in dialogue or debate with another. This exhibit explores the resonances and dissonances that arise when unrelated objects are set side by side.

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.
