Farm & Art Exhibition now open in NYC
GHENT, NY— Hawthorne Valley Association is pleased to announce the Hawthorne Valley Farm & Art Exhibition is open at La MaMa La Galleria in New York City next week. The art show is a mixed-media exhibition of works inspired by life on Hawthorne Valley’s 400-acre Biodynamic® farm in rural Columbia County, NY. The exhibit will be on display until November 15th, 2014.
The show highlights the works of critically-acclaimed artists alongside budding young talent and features a diversity of styles tied together by the themes of agriculture, art, and place. Many have been long-time residents of Columbia County and Hawthorne Valley community members. Participating artists include Pamela Dalton, Dan Devine, Leif Garbisch, Jill Jakimetz, Harry Lazare, Thomas Locker, Abe Madey, Shelia Mahut, Jason Middlebrook, Martina Müller, Patrick Stolfo, Lawre Stone, Laura Summer, Helen Suter and the Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School Class of 2017. The student work features twelve individual panels that combine to create the scene of a calf. Contributing student artists are Rebekah Bacote, Keve Bonilla Gross, Raphael Elmasri, Benafsha Nader, Oliver Wendell-Braley, and Tianyi Zhao.
An Artists’ Reception will be held on Wednesday, November 5th from 6 to 8pm at the Galleria and is open to the public. The Cleaver Co. will provide cocktails and hors d’oeuvres featuring Hawthorne Valley Farm products, and the evening will include musical entertainment by Quiet in the Head.
