Postcards from the Trail

Madeline Turner ’11  has curated an exhibit at the Thomas Cole House:  Postcards from the Trail
Thomas Cole’s beloved home, Cedar Grove, is abuzz with excitement. This summer, Thomas Cole National Historic Site invited artists to visit one or more of the 22 sites on the newly expanded Hudson River School Art Trail, and to create and submit an original postcard-sized painting or drawing based on one of the iconic sites painted by the Hudson River School artists. All of the artworks made will be presented in an exhibition titled “Postcards from the Trail”,  that will on view at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site on September 23, from 1 to 4pm. The response to the call for work was phenomenal and there were nearly 250 artworks submitted by adults, as well as area kids, by the August 31st deadline! The exhibition was organized with help from Patti Ferrara, the Thomas Cole Fellows: Margot Mache and Madeline Turner, and TCNHS Collection and Exhibition Manager. A preview of the works will be held on Saturday September 22nd at The Greene County Council on the Arts Annual Garden Party at Beattie-Powers place in Catskill, NY.
