In Hudson, there's always news of art galleries opening and hoping to open. On Wednesday, October 23, there's a new gallery opening in an unexpected space: the Hudson office of Assemblymember Didi Barrett. Working with the Hudson Opera House, Barrett plans a rotating exhibition of the work of artists from all over the community. The first artist whose work will be on view in Barrett's office-cum-gallery is Hudson's own Dan Rupe.
On Wednesday, Barrett is hosting an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Barrett's office is located in Hudson's East End, at 751 Warren Street.
