The Windows on Main St exhibit is back for its fourth year. This year's exhibit will be opening on Saturday, August 9, and run through Sept. 7.
I am one of four curators, along with Karlos Carcamo, Matthew Slaats and Christian Toscano, coordinating nearly twenty storefront artist projects along Main St. Here's a near complete list of the artists and the host locations:
Ryan Burghard - Mountain Tops, 144 Main, Jill Reynolds - Hudson Beach Glass, 162 Main, Tom Hughes - Iron Fish Trading Co., 167 Main, Erin Parsch - Hudson Fisheries Trust, 197 Main, Erica Hauser - Zora Dora's Paletarias, 203 Main, Megan Metcalf - Main St. Salon, 211 Main, Cheyenne Cole & Brian Pena & Rebecca Ambrosini - Paper Presence, 296 Main, Theresa Gooby - Beacon Natural Market, 348 Main, Simon Draper - Exit Drake Realty, 412 Main, Jake Selvidio - Zuzu's 453 Main, Karen Brummund 462 Main, Matthew Slaats - 462 Main, Jenny Price - Jacqueline, 478 Main.
We will be holding two guided walking tours of the exhibit this coming weekend. To make the tours manageable and comfortable, the exhibit will be divided in two with a tour of the western half on Saturday, and the eastern half on Sunday. Here are the details:
Saturday, Aug 9 @ 3pm, starting at Muddy Cup (129 Main St.)
Sunday, Aug 10 @ 3pm, starting at Zuzu's (453 Main St.)
I can't think of a better way to kick off one's Second Satuday than enjoying a gentle stroll with splendid conversation. The curators and many of the artists will be on hand to discuss their pieces.
Exhibition maps will be available at many locations up and down Main St. Tune in here or at the WOMS blog for more information on the exhibit and accompanying events.
