Platte Clove exhibit to open Saturday

The Daily Star

---- — The Platte Clove Artist-in-Residence exhibit will be on display at the Erpf Gallery starting Saturday and running through Oct. 25 and will feature art inspired by residencies at the Catskill Center’s Platte Clove Cabin. This exhibit will include paintings, poems, video and photography by 20 artists. An artists reception will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Erpf Center in Arkville. 

Each spring the Catskill Center opens its Platte Clove cabin in the Platte Clove Preserve in Greene County to visual artists, writers, poets, composers, performing artists and environmental researchers. The Catskill Center’s residency program is the only one in the country situated in the historic area where the tradition of American landscape painting, also known as The Hudson River School, was initiated by Thomas Cole, Asher Durand, Frederic Edwin Church and others who searched the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain Region for untainted wilderness.
