Ralph Moseley exhibits for the first time in nearly 50 years

Ralph Moseley exhibits for the first time in nearly 50 years

Saturday, June 22: The upcoming exhibit in the Art Gallery of Lockwood Architecture has been curated by Moseley’s longtime friend and champion, Barbara Redfield (an original trustee of Olana). She says, “His studio is a treasure-trove. I pestered him for 20 years to take his work out. After [being involved] in the Color Field movement in the late ’60s early ’70s, he felt that the people who were really worthy were not selling, and he said, ‘That’s it’ and just dropped out of the art world. But he’s painted every single day without any connections to anyone.”

Festa at Italian Center Thursday, May 16-Sunday, May 19: One doesn’t have to stroll far along the streets of Poughkeepsie’s Mount Carmel district to come across a bakery or restaurant that reaches back into the century-old culinary traditions brought to the Hudson Valley by Italian emigrants. The story goes that Eleanor Roosevelt’s limousine driver would pull up to Caffe Aurora and fetch her a box of pastries to take home to Hyde Park.
