Exhibitions | Columbia County Contemporary Art

Columbia County is well renown for the  mid-19th century Hudson River School, the art movement focused on the romantic interpretation and representation of the nearby landscapes. But a contemporary visitor can go beyond Olana in the timeline as Columbia County flourishes with contemporary art galleries. While in the recent years Hudson has seen the main galleries concentration, several galleries have recently opened in the town of Chatham.

My Chatham art galleries pick is the Thompson Giroux Gallery located in 57 Main Street. The gallery currently shows “Line and Color” an exhibition of works in different media, ranging from painting to drawings, sculpture and installation and including works by Emily Cheng, Jean Feinberg, Tom Hopes, David Paulson and Michael Tong.
