Great art is timeless. Whether it is impressionism, abstract, realism, Baroque, or pieces from the Early Renaissance, art has a way of transcending barriers, evoking thought, stirring emotions, and helping you see people and every day objects in a whole new light. Some deem galleries as only interesting for the “artsy” type but in reality, there is much to be learned and gained by the great local artists that hail from the Hudson Valley and beyond.
Throughout the Hudson Valley you can find a myriad of wonderful art galleries—perfect for an afternoon outing or as part of a special evening celebration with a loved one. There are many within a short driving distance from The Caldwell House so for our guests coming in for a getaway this season, we’ve compiled a list that you can just print out and take with you as you go!
