On Saturday, April 20th, between 2-5 pm, please join Private Public Gallery for an exhibition of photographs by Chad Weckler, along with the launch of his recently published book, “Creative Exposure / Portraits of Hudson, New York.”

Weckler has installed 107 photographs of individuals who have made a creative impact on the City of Hudson, N.Y., all of which were shot during the years 2022 and 2023.

Weckler’s project is a timely documentation of a thriving arts community in Upstate New York. Hudson is a small city with a population of less than 6,000 people and is home to a myriad of creative individuals who work within the performing, musical, literary, and visual arts. Many of them are pioneers, drawn to Hudson before its rise to prominence, and are, in large part, the backbone and vibrancy of the community.

This project has been generously supported by a grant from the Martha Boschen Porter Fund, the New York State Council on the Arts, The Spark of Hudson in partnership with the Eutopia Foundation, a grant from The Bank of Greene County Charitable Foundation, and is supported by a grant from the Galvan Foundation.

The project will be exhibited in Hudson at the Private Public Gallery from April 20th to May 4th, 2024.

Creative-Exposure/Hudson is a one year project that started August 12, 2022 to photograph 100+ individuals who have made a creative impact on the City of Hudson, NY.
