Happy Easter, happy spring! It looks as if the long winter is finally over, and with that comes new activity. I just want to tell you about two special activities coming up:
The Hunter Foundation’s 2014 Online Auction begins today, Earth Day. The Hunter Foundation is located in what IMHO is the most beautiful area in the Catskill region; you can visit their website to learn about their mission and goals. I had the honor to be invited to donate one of my photographs to their auction and so I chose one of my most popular ones, Catskill Woodland Glow (shown above). The winner will receive this, beautifully framed, along with a copy of our book, Historic Hudson Valley. Please visit their website to see the page for my entry — there are many good prizes here, it’s for a worthy cause, and I hope you’ll bid on something to help the Hunter Foundation and perhaps win something you’ll enjoy.
Also — this Sunday Anton and I will be speaking about our Historic Hudson Valley at the Albany Institute of History and Art! That’s Sunday April 27 at 2 pm. We’re quite excited to be speaking at the place that houses not only one of the most impressive collection of Hudson River School paintings anywhere but also the complete collection of Thomas Cole’s papers! Here is the AIHA home page — you can get directions there — and here is the page featuring our talk. Hope to see you there!
