We’re Not in Kansas Anymore

through November 2 • Hastings Village Hall

The Hastings-on-Hudson Village Arts Commission in partnership with the Hastings Historical Society announce We’re Not in Kansas Anymore: Journeys to Places Real and Imagined, a multimedia exhibit and celebration of art’s ability to transport us to places we’ve experienced or places we’ve only dreamed of.  

Through a variety of media — painting, photography, mosaic, watercolors and fiber arts — the show highlights individual responses to the question, “Where does your art transport you?” The juried art exhibit showcases twenty-nine works selected from more than 200 submissions. The artists included in the show represent eighteen communities in New York and New Jersey. Of the twenty-nine, ten are from Hastings.

Featured: Lea Carmichael, Julia Eisen-Lester, Fernanda Franco, Randy Frost, Trine Giaver, Raine Gifford, Eleanor Goldstein, EB Gregor, Carol Herd-Rodriguez, Susan Hoeltzel, Ellen Hopkins Fountain, Kristin Javier, Dara Kane, Ed Lessing, Jamie MacKenzie, Sherri Paul, Carol Perron Sommerfield, DeAnn Prosia, David Rabinowitz, Susan Richman, Elyza Sanchez, Salvador Sanchez, Jamie Taylor, Robert Uricchio, Soma Vajpayee, Michael Washburn, Karen Williams Edelmann, Donald Winter, and Lesley Zablinger.
