The Gallery is inspired by the Hudson River which is a uniting force that has sustained life, growth, and hope in our valley's history. It has provided the lifeblood and backbone to our industry and trade, and now our arts and culture, our past and our future.
The Winds represent constant change, the force that propels us, uplifts us, commands us to create art. They feed the artists souls with the need to connect, comfort and sometimes challenge. These winds blow warm and cool, hot and cold, from all directions, and sometimes not at all. Through these changes, the artists work evolves, and grows.
The River and the Winds give the courage, inspiration and vision to open RiverWinds Gallery and to celebrate all the artisans have been called to create.
