Sa 5/16- ARTISTS ON LOCATION: SPRING ART AUCTION and Sa 5/30- “FLOAT YOUR BOAT” QUADRICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION at Garrison Art Center, Garrison—Eighty-five selected artists will set up easels in favorite spots along the banks of the Hudson River (or really, anywhere they like in the Hudson Valley) on the morning of Saturday May 16th, and paint until late afternoon. They will then convene at Garrison Art Center, where refreshments will be served in a tent outdoors, and the fresh works—still wet—will be auctioned, alongside a silent auction for some of the artists’ previous works. Then later in the month (Sa 5/30) GAC celebrates the Quadricentennial of Henry Hudson’s first visit to what is now New York with “Float Your Boat,” a floating sculpture project at the river’s edge. From the press release: “We’ve shanghaied the most talented crew of woodworkers, builders, artists and captains to collaborate with you, your family and all your favorite river rats. Your sculpture will be fashioned out of all manner of shipwrecked materials and launched on our cleverly rigged flotilla line. Building commences at Noon; Sculptures launch by 3 PM. Bring your hammer, screwdriver and picnic lunch. RSVP or walk the plank!”
