Hudson valley art association


The primary Art Association of the Hudson River Valley region of New York state, this organization was located in Yonkers, New York. It was founded in 1928 by artists of the region in the studio of Jasper Cropsey, 1823-1900, Hudson River Valley painter. For many years, the Association functioned as a local art society, but later it became regional, attracting exhibitors from the New England states, and others in the eastern United States. Only realistic style art is accepted in the exhibitions, and each spring the Association holds a show in the Exhibition Galleries of the Newington-Cropsey Foundation at Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. Members include Max Bieberman. Clarence Chatterton, Frank DuMond, and Aldro Hubbard. Source: AskART biographies;
