“Re-Imagine Garner”

The Re-Imagine Garner exhibition celebrating the new vision for GARNER Arts Center and featuring over 100 artists of the Hudson Valley (and beyond) will be coming to town October 12 & 13.

The reception will have live music, food, wine and beer and silent auction which will benefit the re-building and re-opening of the new GARNER Art Center in building 35, the former mill cafeteria at the beautiful and historic factory complex in Garnerville, New York, after Hurricane Irene destroyed GARNER Arts Center’s Main Gallery in August 2011.

The artist studio tours will allow visitors to see more than 30 artists working at their crafts including sculpting, painting, printmaking, photography, jewelry and textile arts, as well as art installations placed throughout the complex and more.

Visitors will be able to see the studio of GARNER Arts Center’s first artist-in-residence, artist-photographer Spencer Tunick. Tunick is best known for organizing large-scale nude shoots; since 1994 he has created over 75 temporary site-specific installations in the United States and abroad.
