New In-depth Exhibition Tours at Olana

The Olana Partnership is proud to announce special in-depth tours of the exhibition Maine Sublime: Frederic Edwin Church’s Landscapes of Mount Desert Island and Mount Katahdin. For the very first time, visitors are invited to join us every Saturday on the hour from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm through October 26th in the Evelyn and Maurice Sharp Gallery at Olana (Hudson, NY) to explore Olana’s feature exhibition. These tours offer a rare opportunity to experience the Olana collection in a more traditional gallery context and learn about the artist’s special relationship to the Maine landscape. The tours are offered for a fee of $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and students with a valid ID, and are free to children under 12 and members of The Olana Partnership. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 518-828-0135.

Curatorial Assistant Christopher T. Richards, Bard graduate 2012, will be leading the tours. “Mr. Richards leads a wonderful tour,” comments Associate Curator Valerie Balint. “He has worked very closely with us in the planning of Maine Sublime here at Olana. His enthusiasm and knowledge of the works will offer visitors the chance to engage with the art objects and their history, not to mention answer questions in great detail.”
