About the Hudson Valley Art & Wine – A Grand Celebration

One year ago, Hudson Valley Wine Magazine paired 18 jury-selected Hudson Valley artists with 12 Hudson Valley wineries to create original works of art inspired by the wineries and reflecting the beauty of this historic region. The exhibit premiered on May 21, 2011 at Lyndhurst, a National Trust Historic site in Westchester, NY, the gateway to the Hudson Valley. The exhibit will travel to various galleries in the Hudson Valley throughout 2011.

About M Gallery and Catskill, NY
Catskill became a landmark when long-time resident and artist, Thomas Cole, introduced the Hudson River School of Painting. American art was forever changed by Cole’s influence as founder and father of the movement. He impressed countless numbers of talented and noted painters — Church, Blakelock, Inness, Durand and others — who claimed glory using the backdrop of the magnificent Catskill region. The history continues, inspired by dramatic panoramas, tumultuous skies, exceptional light, and the bold profile of a timeless mountain range. Artist Patrick Milbourn, owner of M Gallery, paints signature landscapes and fine art portraits that convey a sense of history and lifestyle. Milbourn has received a variety of awards and accolades from the Pastel Society of America, the National Academy of Art, the Salmagundi Club and the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Letters.
