This special exhibition of paintings by Will Moses, great-grandson of the legendary folk artist, Grandma Moses is presented in partnership with the Irving Heritage Society. Born and raised in Eagle Bridge, New York, Moses creates paintings that reflect the quiet beauty of this tiny community nestled close to the Vermont border and depict a vivid, delightful world peopled with villagers who have stepped out of the past to charm us with their simple, everyday pastimes and seasonal activities. Original illustrations from Moses’s books The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle (based on Washington Irving’s short stories) are among the featured works.
Conversation with the Artist: April 3, 4 p.m. on the Dupree Theater stage followed by a reception and book signing. Free.
