0502 – Old Business and New

IMG_9756_01_LR_12 I was finally able to gather together links to two recent events I have referenced recently. The first is a link to the terrific profile that Mik Horowitz did for the Hudson Valley Almanac. Peering into Deep Time is the title of the article. The full version (PDF with original layout) can be found by clicking on Deep Time in the Nav Bar above. The web version can be found here.

Also, the recent radio interview I did with Ann Cooper is currently archived at WGXC Radio. The full 45 minute interview can be found HERE.

More good news arrived late yesterday. I was informed that I was chosen for the Platte Clove Artists in Residency Program. This is a program sponsored by the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development. Since 1969, The Catskill Center  has worked to protect the natural resources of the Catskills and promote the economy for communities throughout the Catskill Park, Catskill Mountains and the entire Catskill Region.

Regarding the program, their website states:

The Catskill Center also offers the Platte Clove Artists-in-Residence program – the only one in the country situated in the historic area where the first American school of landscape was initiated in 1825 (The Hudson River School of Painting) by Thomas Cole, Asher Durand, Thomas Doughty, Frederic Edwin Church and others who searched the Frederic Church,Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain Region for untainted wilderness.The Platte Clove cabin sits where mountain and valley meet, providing a tranquil and rustic workplace and retreat for artists working in a variety of disciplines in the living landscape where American art began.

With this in mind, I’ve decided to post some images from a project I did a couple of years ago tying the artists of the Hudson River School to the early geologists who together hiked Platte Clove.

The above images are from the Thomas Cole House and are part of a collection that belonged to Cole himself. While Platte Clove, as far as I know, has no fossils it does have rock formations and landscape that those early explorers captured in their drawings and paintings. More from my project (with respect to those painters):
