Linda Piero and Bob Bedford, of Hudson Valley Wine magazine, hosted to Hudson Valley Art & Wine 2010 event at the Locust Grove at the The Samuel Morse Historic Site. The wineries were there, the artists were there, and the Hudson Valley Tourism folks were there.

And there was a lot to celebrate. This was a preview of some of the art destined for the final big show in spring 2010. The show will then travel up and down the valley and be featured in several museums and galleries from Westchester to Albany.

There has been a long and rich tradition of grape growing and art in the Hudson Valey. The new spirit embracing the wine community is a great one. And this co-joining with the Valley's artists makes it that much more exciting.

The evening went very well. Lot's of great wine, fabulous cheese from Sprout Creek Farm, and wonderful handmade chocolates. A lovely time.

Bob and Linda and guest at the event. The other gentleman is Jack Braunlein, Director of Lyndhurst, which will be the first venue to show the complete selection of the works of art in the spring at the Lyndhurst Mansion. (event information and ticket ordering below!)
