Take An Art Crawl From Saugerties to Woodstock

By inside + out | November 28, 2022

There’s such a wealth of art and crafts on display in the Hudson Valley, it’s impossible to see it all in a day. Small excursions focusing on one area —an art crawl with time for a leisurely lunch— may be the most enjoyable way to go. Saugerties and Woodstock are great places to start an art crawl, as the area continues its long tradition of attracting artists and craftspeople. Photo above: Richard Segelman at WAAM
