"Big Shoes to Fill," Kate Hamilton’s current installation at Thompson Giroux Gallery

Kate Hamilton lives and works in New Paltz, and has been studying and practicing the language of clothes for years, as a hat maker, costumer, and artist. Last summer, with Marian Schoettle, she co-created and produced DaDa Spill, a multi-media, multi-artist project staged underground in the Widow Jane Mine below Rosendale.
