Coming this fall...Edith Howland: A Catskill Artist in the Far East

Join us for the launch of a special exhibition at Beattie-Powers Place,
featured on the
Fourth Annual Village of Catskill Artists Studio & Gallery Tour
Saturday, Sept. 10th, 11 am to 5 pm
Sunday, Sept. 11th, 11 am to 5 pm

In 1908, sculptress Edith Howland visited China, and captured her impressions in a series of lively watercolors. Friends of Beattie-Powers is pleased to present these works (courtesy of the Greene County Historical Society) by a woman who was a maverick in her time -- and a member of the family that built one of our county's most memorable homes, now known as Catwalk. The exhibition will continue through May 1, 2012.

Of course, we're thrilled once again to join the artists and organizations who make the Catskill Artists Studio & Gallery Tour possible -- with special thanks to the Catskill Gallery Association and the Greene County Council on the Arts. It's a unique opportunity to get "up close and personal" with contemporary artists working in our area, and to visit the galleries and institutions that make Catskill special. We hope you enjoy every stop on this fun and fascinating tour. Maps are available at the GCCA, M Gallery and the Thomas Cole National Historic Site.
