Getting ready for a pop-up portrait show in Hudson, NY, opens 7/30

See the space imagine a pop-up gallery, I can see it and am seeing portraits.

Beautiful picture of Eileen Cohen, mother of the proprietor .
We'll clear out all the furniture and hang and install art from 18 artists (and counting, it keeps going up as we add more work)
Andre Ethier
Untitled, 2010
Oil on panel, 16 x 12 inches

Keith Mayerson
Elvis the King 2010
Oil on canvas, 48 x 36 inches
(ya gotta have an Elvis)

The two portraits above are good representations of two ends of this portrait exhibition.  I am helping Scot Cohen to put together a pop-up portrait show in Hudson, New York to coincide with NADA Hudson, an upstate New York art fair happening on the weekend of July 30 and 31st.  Below is a list of artists and a simple summary of what we decided to guide us.  What really propelled us forward with this show idea was that we love art and why not in this space and then the weekend presented itself and now we are excitedly running around.  I'll post more in the coming weeks.
