Some of the Hudson River's smaller fauna are gliding high over a canopy of trees. This honey dew loving butterfly enjoys sunny days. Their delicate wings feature shades of purple on the outer side, while the ventral is brown, covered in patterns and patches of white, with a characteristic eyespot.
Slight variation in embroidery, size, shape and color is part of the handmade craft and may be apparent between pieces; this is not considered a defect but is celebrated as a mark of made by hand.
Trovelore is a love affair between art and textiles. A modern mix of fabrics, eclectic colours and embroideries form the heart of handcrafted gifts.
The Hudson River is much more than a body of water. The Hudson has been the home for humans and hundreds of species of fish, birds, and plants for centuries. Our exhibition, Hudson Rising, reflects on how human activity has impacted the river and, in turn, how the river environment has shaped art, industrial development, commerce, tourism, and environmental awareness. On view March 1 – August 2, 2019.
