Carrie Haddad Celebrates Her 20th

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings A huge crowd, spilling onto the street, gathered on Saturday, April 23, to help Carrie Haddad celebrate the 20th anniversay of the Carrie Haddad Gallery. Twenty years ago when Haddad (left, with her Warren Street neighbor Mark Wasserbach of Mark’s Antiques) held her first art exhibition in Hudson, it was a different town.  “It looked the same, but the shops were different,” she recalls. “We had a supermarket that delivered, and Rocky the Barber, and the Jersey Bakery.”  Today, in their stead, we have businesses with hip names—Lick, Mix, TK, Gris, Swoon, Sweeps, DABA, Lili and Loo, Spotty Dog, Five & Diamond.  Jersey?  It must have seemed like a good idea at the time.
