We've added a new show at our gallery in Hyde Park, "OUR PRICELESS PARKS", opening reception SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 5:30-8:30 pm in celebration of two special anniversaries - the 75 years of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Presidential Library and the 100 years of the Park Service. Our local parks are unique and precious experiences, both in beauty and history. We're proud of them and you'll feel it in our show. We're also having a special Antiques and Art Objects Sale during this exhibition.

MARK THE DATE: OCTOBER 1ST, BOB DYLAN TRIBUTE CONCERT
A concert to benefit the Artists’ Collective of Hyde Park will be held in the Methodist Church Hall on Route 9 in Hyde Park at 8:00 PM on Saturday, October 1st. The concert will feature Maggie’s Farm, a “Pop-Up” band of celebrated Hudson Valley club musicians who will gather together for one night only to celebrate the music of Bob Dylan. From the early days of one voice and one guitar singing Blowin’ In The Wind to the then-controversial electric sounds of Like A Rolling Stone and Rainy Day Women, Maggie’s Farm will recreate and reinterpret many of the songs that helped permanently fix the songs of Bob Dylan in our collective consciousness. Participating musicians will include Jim Pospisil, Ann Miceli Teed (of Annie & the Attaboys), Eric Garrison, John Allers, Brian Maloney, Geri Loughry, Eric Reinhardt and Roy Notaro.
