Hudson Valley As The Next SoHo?
"Curator Karl Willers characterizes the Hudson Valley as the nation's newest SoHo, Chelsea, or Williamsburg, Pa.; a place where working artists can live and create inexpensively, and yet stay within the orbit of the major gallery scenes in New York and Boston.... The artists here have arrived for various reasons - the region's handful of colleges (Bard, Vassar, SUNY-New Paltz), cheap housing and studio space, and memories of family vacations. The local scene is also very uncity-like. Galleries, restaurants, and studio enclaves are separated by miles of rural driving."
