Clothesline Art Show, June 2012

Hudson Society of Artists will host its 49th annual Clothesline Art Show in conjunction with the Hudson Home and Garden Tour on June 14-15.

The Clothesline Art Show will feature a wide variety of small original artwork created by HSA members. Paintings will include original watercolors along with some oils, acrylics and drawings. Pieces are unframed, matted and wrapped in protective plastic. Approximately 250 pieces will be on display for sale, ranging from about $15 to $200. In addition, visitors can also watch an artist demo by HSA president Lucy Karslake.

The show runs:

Thursday and Friday
June 14-15
10 a.m.  to 5 p.m. 

Visit the Clothesline Art Show at the Hudson Middle School, 77 N. Oviatt St., also the site of the Hudson Garden Club’s Garden Shop and Tea Room. The Clothesline Art Show is free and open to the public.

At the first show in 1963, students of Hudson artist Lowell E. Smith hung their paintings from a clothesline on a porch on Division Street. Today, the clothespins are clipped to aluminum panels but the spirit of the show continues.

Ten percent of the proceeds from the Clothesline Art Show and other annual shows that the group sponsors benefit HSA’s scholarship fund, the Lowell Smith/Margaret Roby Memorial Scholarship. Each year the award is presented to a senior Hudson High School art student.
