Hudson Art Show in the News

The Hudson Society of Artists has joined with the Hudson Garden Club's annual Home and Garden Tour Garden Shop and Tea to present members' paintings in its annual Clothesline Art Show and Sale during Hudson Festival Days.
Hudson's Antiques and Collectibles also will join the show.
All three groups will be together for the third year at the Hudson Middle School, 77 N. Oviatt St., June 18 through 20 from noon to 5 p.m. each day.
Each day there will be approximately 300 paintings on display for sale. Most of the paintings are realistic watercolors with a few oils, acrylics, and drawings. Many of them are floral still lifes, landscapes and Hudson scenes. The paintings will be unframed, matted and wrapped in protective plastic. A few canvas pieces will also be available ready to hang.
The paintings will range from $20 to $200, but most of the paintings will be under $75. Approximately 30 members participate in the show and are allowed to enter up to 12 paintings each.
Ten percent of the proceeds from this and other annual shows the club sponsors each year benefit HSA's scholarship fund, The Margaret Roby Memorial Scholarship, which is awarded each year to a senior Hudson High School art student. This year's $2,500 award went to Amy Breedon.
