Visual art, a prize-winning author, performance, and live music. Your week of wonderful Hudson Valley activities is here.

ART

Monotypes Exhibit in Rosendale “Beyond the Shore: What Lies Beneath” is an exhibit of monotypes by Suzanne Stokes on view through February 28 at the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale. The series, according to a press release, “explores water as substance, metaphoric allusion, and forms a collective narrative that addresses mankind’s complicated relationship to this essential natural resource. Through the divergent lenses of micro and macro perspectives, [Stokes] examines the nature of existence and its relationship to water on physical and metaphysical planes.” https://wsworkshop.org/
