ALBANY, NY — The Hudson Valley Art & Wine “Pairing Project” is coming to town.
The event, set for 5 to 7 p.m. next Wednesday (October 5) at the Albany Heritage Visitors Center, is the final scheduled exhibition for the traveling, winery-inspired art collection under the auspices of a program created by Hudson Valley Wine magazine. Reservations, made by e-mail, are necessary by Monday (October 3).
On view will be 18 artists’ works inspired by 12 of the Hudson Valley’s wineries, including Hudson-Chatham Winery in Ghent and Brookview Station Winery in Castleton, whose wines will be featured at the event. Paired food tastings will be presented by Classé Catering of Albany and R&G Cheeses of Cohoes.
The “pairing” project is part of a year-long celebration to create awareness of the art, wine and cultural experiences that have a deep-rooted history in the Hudson Valley region. The exhibit includes oil landscapes, abstract acrylics, still life, photography and mixed media sculpture including pieces made from barrel staves used in making wine.
