After-Hours at Galleries New and Old in Hudson
Fiona Breslin reports from Hudson.
More than usual, art lovers were out and about on Saturday, July 28, as NADA (New Art Dealers Alliance) brought a swarm of contemporary artists and creative minds to the city for its second annual Hudson art fair. Galleries along Warren Street propped their doors open late, inviting visiting and local connoisseurs to explore new work in various media and to engage with artists at intimate receptions. The evening also marked the debut of Galerie Gris at 621 Warren Street, the new art space run by Steve Isoz and Todd Gribben, proprietor of GRIS antiques and interior design. The gallerists threw a party to open their venue and its initial exhibition, Electric Blossom, new large-scale, fluorescent-hued images of flowers by photographer Torkil Gudnason. (Above, Gribben and Isoz flank Jessica Gudnason and artist Torkil Gudnason.) Electric Blossom remains on view through August 24th.
