Red Hook’s Sculpture Expo 2014 thru November 21st along Route 9 in the Village of Red Hook
The streets of Red Hook will become a gallery through November 21, when the second annual Red Hook Sculpture Expo is installed at prominent sites throughout the village. An opening celebration will take place at 5 p.m. Saturday, June 28, at the Red Hook Community Arts Network Gallery and Artists Collective.
Visitors to Red Hook will be able to see fourteen sculptures by eight artists, working with granite, steel, iron, wood and marble dust. The work – by local and regional artists – includes representational and abstract sculptures.
“We were excited to have won Arts Mid-Hudson Executive’s Arts Award for Art in Public Places for Sculpture Expo 2013,” said Rita Gentile, who curated Sculpture Expo 2014 with Conrad Levenson. “We’re pleased to have found another strong group of work to exhibit this year.”
This year’s Sculpture Expo includes work by Leon Smith, Conrad Levenson, David Channon, Allan Cyprys, Frederik Rostock, Gilbert Boro, Tyler Borchert and Binney Meigs. “The Expo is designed as a self-guided walking tour,” explained Gentile. “Sculptures will be placed in front of businesses, the Village Hall, Red Hook Public Library, the Elmendorph Inn and Veteran’s Memorial Park.” All work featured in the Sculpture Expo is for sale.
