With its hard back, the blue beetle flourishes in a variety of habitats, including riverscapes such as the Hudson River's. Munching on vegetative foliage, they correspond with their friends and surroundings through sounds and vibrations, making up for their poor sight. Inspired by nature, our whimsical but elegant brooches are exquisitely hand embroidered using artisan skills and illustrative vintage appeal.
Trovelore is a love affair between art and textiles. A modern mix of fabrics, eclectic colors 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.
