FRIDAY, March 15, 2024: Westchester Sketchers at the Hudson River Museum, 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:

Rivers Flow / Artists Connect
The cultural, social, and spiritual significance of rivers is universal, as proven by their enduring presence in art and in our collective imagination. In this exhibit, American artists from the 1820s to the present day explore and illuminate our profound, symbiotic relationship with significant rivers across the globe, from the Hudson and the Susquehanna to the Indus and the Seine.

A Feast for the Eyes: Sumptuous Still Lives
Still-life paintings are deceptively straightforward. They depict groups of objects as their main subject matter—flowers, food, drink, and the vessels that contain them—yet they are often imbued with symbolic meaning and offer a new way of looking at everyday itemsThis exhibit invites you to revel in lush expressions of beauty, sustenance, and abundance spanning 150 years.

Optional: Highlights of Glenview: Historic House Tour at 1 PM 

Glenview is an 1877 Gilded Age home on the National Register of Historic Places, designed by architect Charles W. Clinton. The home reflects the lifestyle of its former residents, the Trevor family, and features fine woodworking, furnishings, decorative objects, paintings, and sculptures.
