Known as the Hudson Valley’s “creative capital,” Kingston is a community that fosters both artists and patrons. Most of the Hudson Valley has exploded with new growth and creativity over the past few years thanks to historic housing stock, a robust foodie scene, and zoning deliberately meant to provide a platform for artists. These factors made Kingston the go-to spot for those seeking respite from New York City during the pandemic.
For centuries, the Hudson Valley has served as an inspiring enclave and creative retreat for artists, and that trend continues through the present. “As a resident of and business owner in Kingston, it’s been thrilling to see the swell of the creative community here,” said Janet Hicks. In addition to being the Founder of OMG and owner of the One Mile Gallery, she is Vice President and Director of Licensing at the Artists Rights Society in New York City. “With so many art enthusiasts living in the area and so many visitors coming to Kingston, I thought, ‘why shouldn’t we have our own world-class fair?'”
Between 15 and 20 galleries and artists are expected to exhibit at OMG.
- Galleries include the Jane Lombard Gallery, Jim Kempner Fine Art, Field Projects, One Mile Gallery, Kenise Barnes Fine Art, 11 Jane Street, Jane Deering Gallery, High Noon Gallery, Theodore Art, BK Projects, Ver Sacrum Fine Art, Cade Tompkins Projects, Soapbox Arts and Alabama artist collective Gee’s Bend Quilters.
- Artists include Samantha French, Aaron Hauck, Kyle Meyer, Mike King, artist/filmmaker Guy Maddin.
- At the VIP opening night event, artist Jim Watt will perform his multi-dimensional project with jazz musicians 1000W. Artworks will be available for sale, including work from both established and emerging artists.
Whether you have a few hours or a full day, stop by Kingston NY, for a fun-filled cultural experience as businesses come together to highlight Uptown’s thriving community. They are welcoming locals and visitors from afar to shop, feast, and peruse art and the maker’s market curated by Phoenicia Flea. Have fun!
