New Issue of Review Looks at Art and Landscape in
the Hudson River Valley
Spring issue of "Hudson River Valley Review" out now
POUGHKEEPSIE (June 14, 2017) – One of the goals of The Hudson River Valley Review is to discover and promote relatively unknown characters of historic significance, which is why the Spring 2017 issue – out now – introduces readers to Tappan-born artist John Quidor and his little-known late works.
The balance of the issue features articles adapted from The Worlds of Andrew Jackson Downing: A Bicentennial Celebration, hosted by The Hudson River Valley Institute at Marist College on October 25, 2015. These articles by recognized authorities on Downing and his legacy begin with the nineteenth-century Newburgh context into which America’s first great landscape designer was born and conclude with 200 years of perspective on what he accomplished and inspired.
The Hudson River Valley Review is available at select booksellers and museum gift-shops throughout the region for $15.00 each. Subscriptions are available through the website or by calling 845-575-3052. A one-year subscription (two issues) is $20.00. Save even more by subscribing for two years at $35.00.
