Art, through an experienced lens

In a recent edition of our newsletter, we told you about the Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra’s April 22 concert in Hyde Park that will be offered in tribute to Pete Seeger and the Hudson River.

We also mentioned that works by noted Hudson River photographer Joseph Squillante would accompany the program.

Well, we’ve since heard that Squillante will also be featured in a new exhibit in North White Plains.

“Progressions: The Hudson River to Recent Work,” a survey of Squillante’s work from throughout his 40-plus-year career, will open April 20 at Atelier 811 Gallery and continue through May 25.

The show is curated by gallery owner Milt Ellenbogen. During the opening reception, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. April 20, Squillante will offer a lecture and PowerPoint presentation about his latest work and its production.

Squillante, the founder of the Hudson River School of Photography whose biography shares that his mission is “to foster an awareness of the river’s visual magnificence through photography,” works with organizations such as Riverkeeper, Clearwater and Scenic Hudson. In addition, his work can be found in the permanent collections of the New-York Historical Society, the Museum of the City of New York and the Albany Institute of History and Art.

The gallery is at 811 N. Broadway.
