Tom Rinaldi and I have really enjoyed our first few gallery talks and lecture presentation at the New York State Museum, making new friends and seeing familiar faces, and receiving feedback on our Hudson Valley Ruins exhibit. One review in particular (linked below) is very flattering and provides a detailed visual interpretation of our images and of the gallery space, which includes architectural fragments, interpretive text, and ephemera from the featured sites. You may enjoy reading one artist’s tour of the exhibit:
Geography and Loss: Hudson Valley Ruins at the New York State Museum – By Sarah Sutro, for the Newington-Cropsey Cultural Studies Center. November 2016.
Our photographs are interspersed with artifact displays, including a wall of 40 Hudson River bricks.
Now “long-lost” ruins such as Briarcliff Lodge are included in the exhibit. Photographs span the time frame of 1994-2016.
The fates of ruins such as the Yonkers Power Station and the original 1825 Cellblock at Sing Sing Prison remain to be determined.
Our book “Hudson Valley Ruins: Forgotten Landmarks of an American Landscape” is for sale in the museum shop! Come to one our our events and we will personalize it for you. The next event will be Gallery Tours on Saturday January 14, 2017, at 1:00pm and 3:00pm. Join one or the other!
