A blog about Hudson, New York

A Dot of Art















ArtsWalk continues again this year, and one can’t help the feeling that it’s presence in Hudson seems to diminish every year, albeit with a  number of exceptions mostly in the five and six hundred blocks.  Well we’ve always got art in spades, with more quality galleries in town than ever and effective art in nearly every antiques and home furnishings store, as well as in just about all of the town’s restaurants. No one is a better curator than the Red Dot’s Alana Hauptmann. As she does wonderfully for her bar/restaurant for nearly every holiday except Purim, Hauptmann has this year killed two birds with one stone, doing an ArtsWalk exhibition on her own and getting a leap on Halloween with some effectively bizarre yet handsome shadow boxes/assemblages by Dennis Herbert, a longtime Hudson resident. If you want to see more of Herbert’s work, you can make an appointment to visit his gallery, a converted garage at 75 North 2nd Street. The number is (518) 828-2574. — Scott Baldinger
