‘Postcards from New York’s Hudson Valley’, an innovative International Postcard Exhibition curated by NEA studio artist Irina Korotkow and New York based photographer Mary Anne Glass, is on display in NEA’s Exhibition Gallery (Gallery 2) from June 18th to July 14th.
Mary Anne Glass visited North East Artisans early in 2019 while in Victoria conducting workshops. On her return to New York, Mary Anne asked twenty-eight artists from New York’s Hudson Valley (about 60-70 miles north of New York City along the Hudson River) to make postcard-sized (6x8 inches) artwork on paper, cardstock, or unstretched canvas. And they were excited to participate!
The work now on exhibition at North East Artisans encompasses oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings as well as photography, mixed media, collage art and woodcuts.
‘Postcards from New York’s Hudson Valley’ represents the first stage in a reciprocal international exchange of postcard artwork. Irina Korotkow is now encouraging artists from North East Victoria to respond to the exhibition by contributing post card sized artwork to a post card exchange with artists from the Hudson Valley. Submissions need to be 2 dimensional works 6 x 8 inches on cardstock, paper, unstretched canvas.
Postcards created and exchanged by artists from North East Victoria will be exhibited in a month-long response show at RiverWinds Gallery, Beacon, New York State, with an opening during Beacon’s Second Saturday, when all galleries are open.
“The postcard exchange and reciprocal show at RiverWinds Gallery in New York’s Hudson Valley provide a wonderful opportunity for artists in North East Victoria to broaden our artistic horizons, make a stimulating connection with artists on the other side of the globe and have our artwork exhibited in New York!” Irina Korotkow.
'Postcards from New York's Hudson Valley' will be on show in NEA's Exhibition Gallery (Gallery 2) from Tuesday June 18 to Sunday July 14th. The beautiful postcard images will be for sale between $40 to $50 each. If you would like to participate in the postcard exchange and reciprocal exhibition at RiverWinds Gallery, Beacon, in New York’s Hudson Valley, please contact Irina Korotkow on 0407491756

'I am too uncomfortably familiar with fire in the bush and, in this painting, attempt to show its destructive and fearful nature. Yet, also, I'm searching for a Phoenix quality as with fire comes rebirth'
