Remember the Ladies - Women of the Hudson River School

Contrary to popular understanding, landscape painting in the 19th century was not exclusively practiced by men. The 2010 exhibition at the Thomas Cole historical site in Catskill seeks to increase awareness of a previously little-celebrated but highly talented and accomplished group of women artists, and to examine the ways in which women artists were trained and exhibited their work alongside their male colleagues.

Opening Day: Sunday, May 2, 2010. There will be lecture at 2pm by co-curators, Nancy Siegel, Associate Professor of Art History, Towson University and Jennifer Krieger, Managing Partner, Hawthorne Fine Art. Admission to the lecture is $9.

This exhibit runs from May 2 - October 31, 2010.

The Main House and Studio are open by guided tour. From the first Saturday in May through the last Sunday in October, tours are offered Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday 10 am-4 pm. Tours are offered at other times by appointment.

The Thomas Cole house is about 20 minutes away from the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn - one of the main historical sites in our area.
