Art and Commerce: Then and Now

The Olana Partnership and Carrie Haddad Gallery collaborate for a closing conversation marking the end of the exhibition SPECTACLE: Frederic Church and the Business of Art. During this special panel conversation, which takes place on Thursday, March 28, from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., Carrie Haddad will speak about her more than thirty years as a gallerist in Hudson.

"I have always been so drawn to artists for their ability to see things differently. And an a gallerist I feel so lucky to be a supporter and a collaborator to help them bring that vision to the public," said Haddad.

Inspired by Frederic Church's own relationship with the art market, this informal conversation will examine how art and commerce shape the way artists relate to their work and their environments. Hear insights about the contemporary state of the market with gallerists Lena Petersen and Linden Scheff and artists Carl Grauer (Poughkeepsie) and Jane Bloodgood-Abrams (Kingston). 

"Olana's SPECTACLE exhibition, highlighting Frederic Church's own business acumen, provides the perfect occasion to highlight longtime Hudson gallerist Carrie Haddad," said Carolyn Keogh, director of education and public programs for The Olana Partnership. "This lively program will examine the contemporary state of the market and highlight Carrie's important work with artists of the Hudson Valley for more than thirty years."

The event will take place at 127 Union Street in Hudson. Further details will be sent upon registration. Participants will be invited to share their own questions for panelists during a moderated question-and-answer session. The program will be followed by a reception with light refreshments.

Space is very limited, and registration is required. To register to the event, visit
