|April 23, 2008|
It was announced today by Elizabeth Jacks, director of The Thomas Cole National Historic Site at Cedar Grove, the launch of the 2008 season with an exhibition of rarely seen oil sketches of famous Cole paintings, including Cole’s oil study for Kaaterskill Falls. The 2008 special exhibition, "Thomas Cole’s Sketch Paintings: An Exploration of the Creative Process" opens to the public on Sunday May 4. There will be a free viewing of the exhibition on opening day (10am to 2pm). Many of the objects are coming from several private collections and therefore have rarely been seen by the public. In addition, renowned Smithsonian American Art Museum Chief Curator, Eleanor Jones Harvey, will be guest speaker at 2pm. The talk is $7 for non-members and $5 for members.
Exhibit: May 4 – October 26.
Regular Hours: Thursday through Sunday 10AM – 4PM with the last tour departing at 3PM. Tickets for the tour are $7.
This exhibition is made possible in part with public funds from the Greene County Legislature through the Greene County Cultural Fund, administered in Greene County by the Greene County Council on the Arts.
