Riverdrifters Gallery to Open by 'Honoring the Spirit of the Wood'

May 6, 2008

On Saturday, May 10, 2008, the public is invited by Croton-on-Hudson artists Barbara Hunt and Jeanne D. Shaw for the grand opening and reception of their Riverdrifters Fine Art Works Gallery.

“Honoring the Spirit of the Wood” is the overriding theme of the work done by artists Barbara Hunt and Jeanne D. Shaw. The two create sculpture out of Driftwood and other found objects, as well as paintings, photography, ceramic art, Dream Catchers and walking sticks. Along with a strong Native influence, the Hudson River is their main inspiration.

The festivities begin a at 11:00 AM and continue until 4:00 PM and include a gallery dedication at noon, followed by a session on Eastern Woodland history at 1:00 PM. Throughout by day, drumming will be provided by the Nimham Mountain Singers—a unity drum group that sings Eastern Woodland songs of their native Aboriginal Heritage. Light refreshments will also be served.
