Experience the Hudson River Valley. At the Florence Griswold Art Museum this summer.
The Florence Griswold Museum is celebrating summer with a new exhibit. “On Hudson: Highlights from the Albany Institute of History & Art,” will show you everything history and symbolism-related about the Hudson River Valley.
Now, even if you’re not from here, if you’re any kind of an art lover you know the Flo Gris is the home of American Impressionism, famous for its history as an artist’s colony led by Miss Florence. This exhibit is a perfect fit. It shows the heritage of this other culture-shaping area of our land.
The 59 works here display materials by Dutch settlers including portraits, paintings and ceramic tiles of Biblical imagery, bowls and other items. The exhibit runs now through September 23, 2012.
And in the fall, the Florence Griswold will return the favor by sending “Artistic Impressions: American Paintings from the Florence Griswold Museum,” to the Albany Institute.
How’s that for artistic partnership? Don’t miss the opportunity to support these two museums, and learn something new in the process.
