 A Year-Long
Celebration of

 in the Hudson Valley
                        Pairing Hudson Valley artists with Hudson Valley wineries to create a unique exhibition of winery-inspired art.




                        A YEAR-LONG CELEBRATION OF ART & WINE
                        Hudson Valley Wine Magazine will launch the art exhibition created during its
                        “Year-Long Celebration of Art & Wine in the Hudson Valley,” on May 20,
                        2011. The “Year-Long Celebration of Art & Wine in the Hudson Valley” program
                        pairs professional Hudson Valley artists with select Hudson Valley wineries and
                        vineyards to create the first-ever traveling exhibition of winery-inspired artwork in
                        the Hudson Valley. The program began in April 2010 with the jury selection and
                        “pairing” of Hudson Valley artists and wineries, giving the artists a year to create
                        their artwork in the vineyard.

                        The “Year-Long Celebration of Art & Wine in the Hudson Valley” will support the
                        recognition of the Hudson Valley region of New York as a destination for Art, Wine
                        and Cultural experiences, while directly promoting the Hudson Valley Wineries,
                        Artists, Galleries, and Historic Sites. Cultural and winery tourism continues to bring
                        economic vitality to the region, despite the economic downturn of the past few
                        years. Trends today indicate that there is renewed interest in the arts in the Hudson
                        Valley, with the addition of world-class museums and art trails, drawing visitors from
                        all over the world.

                        The Hudson Valley, also the oldest-winemaking region in the US, is home to both
                        Brotherhood Winery, America’s oldest continuously operated winery, and Benmarl,
                        the country’s oldest vineyard. The Hudson Valley wine region is rapidly growing with
                        the addition of new wineries and vineyards each year, now numbering over 35.
                        Wines produced in the Hudson Valley, a designated AVA, have gained increased
                        national and international recognition over the last few years, helping to increase
                        the public’s already burgeoning interest in the local wine industry, which contributes
                        over $3.76 billion to New York State’s economy each year.

                        Hudson Valley Wine Magazine’s “Year-Long Celebration of Art & Wine”
                        will provide a unique opportunity for the art and wine community in the Hudson
                        Valley to combine these interests at a first-ever, high-profile event for the
                        general public.


                        We are seeking sponsors and patrons to support the goals of the
                        Year-Long Celebration of Art & Wine. Your participation will enhance
                        the quality and impact of this first-ever event, while strengthening our
                        mission to enhance the Hudson Valley’s recognition as a destination
                        for Art & Wine.

                        AN OVERVIEW
                        An exhibition of the artwork created for Hudson Valley Wine Magazine’s
                        “Year-Long Celebration of Art & Wine in the Hudson Valley,” will premiere
                        at a Grand Art & Wine event to be held on May 20th and 21st, 2011 at
                        Lyndhurst, a National Trust Historic Site in Tarrytown, NY. Guests of the Grand
                        Art & Wine event will enjoy a Grand Tasting of Hudson Valley wines and
                        gourmet food, while viewing this unique gallery of wine-inspired art by some of
                        the Valley’s most acclaimed artists. Artwork will be available for sale, with
                        proceeds benefiting the artist and the educational programs at Lyndhurst, a
                        National Trust Historic Site. Guests will have the opportunity to engage with the
                        artists and winemakers, and network with an affluent crowd of wine and art
                        aficionados.

                        The “Year-Long Celebration of Art & Wine in the Hudson Valley,” art exhibit will
                        then travel to four art galleries located in the Hudson Valley for the duration of
                        2011. The artwork will also be featured, through sponsorships, in the exhibit
                        catalog in the Spring issue of Hudson Valley Wine Magazine.

                        The artists who are currently participating in the “Year-Long Celebration of Art
                        & Wine in the Hudson Valley were selected by a prestigious jury of art
                        professionals last May. Over seventy-five artists responded to the “Call to
                        Artists” and those selected represent some of the Hudson Valley’s finest artists
                        working professionally in various disciplines today. A partial list of those
                        selected are featured on the following pages.

                        THE ARTISTS / ADVISORS
                        Paul Gould was born in New York City but has lived in the Hudson Valley for most of
                        his life, currently residing in Cornwall, NY. Paul began his painting career at the age of
                        eleven under the guidance of his father, noted artist and illustrator, John Gould. In
                        1957, Paul's parents founded the Bethlehem Art Gallery, where he has conducted art
                        classes for more than 30 years. Painting and instructing in all media, he is well known
                        for his landscape paintings of the Hudson Valley, New England and Ireland.

                        Besides teaching, Paul Gould is highly regarded for his expertise in painting restoration.
                        Because of his artistic skill and experience, he is also frequently called upon to judge
                        art competitions. Paul Gould's paintings and limited edition prints are included in
                        numerous private and public collections around the world and his work is frequently
                        included in juried exhibitions, including the Oil Painters of America National Show, the
                        Hudson Valley Art Association Exhibit, the Kent Art Association, Kent, CT and most
                        recently Arts for the Parks. He is a member of the Oil Painters of America, Kent Art
                        Association and the Hudson Valley Pastel Society. www.hudsonvalleygallery.com


                        Patrick Milbourn began his career in the arts as an illustrator. His work appeared in
                        publications such as Sports Illustrated, Time magazine, the New Yorker, GQ,
                        Entertainment Weekly, Business Week, and Forbes. His paintings have appeared as
                        covers in over forty books published by Random House, Putnam, Ballantine and
                        Doubleday. His foundation in illustration and his ability to capture comprehensive
                        caricatures segued into portrait painting. Weekends in Catskill re-kindled a special
                        interest in landscape painting and offered him a freedom of self-expression.

                        Patrick has received a variety of awards and accolades from the Pastel Society of
                        America, the National Academy of Art, the Salmagundi Club and the prestigious
                        American Academy of Arts and Letters. His paintings have been presented in traveling
                        exhibitions to Japan and Europe. Milbourn has been highlighted in “The Best of
                        Watercolors,” “The Best of Portrait Painting,” “The Best of Pastel Painting” and
                        “Watercolor Expressions.” Patrick has recently been inducted into “Who’s Who in
                        American Art.” His works by commission are in private collections in Europe, Asia and
                        the US. www.mgallery-online.com

                        THE ARTISTS All artists were jury selected to be part of this program.
                        Paola Bari was born and raised in Italy and began her porcelain painting in Milano, Italy.
                        She first became interested in porcelain painting as a teenager and has been actively
                        painting ever since. Paola paints porcelain tiles and limoges pieces with overglaze colors,
                        lusters and precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum, gathering her inspiration from
                        nature, the earth and daily life. She continues her training today in Italy, Switzerland and the
                        US to learn different styles and new techniques to incorporate into her works. Paola has
                        exhibited her work extensively throughout her career both in the United States and Europe.
                        www.paolabari.com


                        David Borenstein is an artist and an architect who recognizes the beauty of recycling and
                        reusing materials. While his point of view is obvious in his sculptures and wall pieces, it is also
                        evidenced in his commitment to building houses for sustainable living. David holds a BS
                        degree from Bard College where he majored in Fine Arts, focusing on sculpture. He also has
                        an MFA from Bard, earned as a class member of the first masters program. David pursued
                        this degree during the summers off from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he
                        studied architecture and earned his Master of Architecture. David has worked in almost every
                        medium, and can make almost anything his medium. He has shown at the Limner Gallery,
                        Cornell Street Gallery, Climate Gallery, Carrie Haddad Gallery, and the Columbia County
                        Council on the Arts. www.borensteinartwork.com


                        Robert Breur describes in sculpture the intricate relationships his subjects have had with
                        their life experiences, their present surroundings and the people in their lives. Breur uses wet
                        clay and his hands to shape and capture these expressions in a free-form fashion. He then
                        finalizes each piece with a texture in clay or a hand-rubbed finish to reveal its natural wood
                        grain. Breur’s work is both intricate in detail and graceful in pose, with a singular message
                        portrayed from head to foot. Not only must it be viewed from all sides but often it must be
                        touched to be fully appreciated, and he often encourages his viewers to do so.

                        Sasha Chermayeff has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries throughout the
                        United States, as well as internationally. Her work is in the Yale University Art Gallery, the US
                        Library of Congress and in corporate and private collections in the United States, Europe,
                        Mexico, and Japan. Sasha has received numerous international fellowships, and recently
                        completed a commissioned seascape painting with seven figures, for environmental activist
                        Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Sasha works in plein air, directly from life, and on studio pieces that
                        are non-representational. Her work is both compelling and sensual, and was recently
                        reviewed in NEW YORKER magazine as "luxuriantly optical" and "sensuous and highly
                        rhythmic." www.sashachermayeff.com

                        Lee Anne Morgan began her creative life in Cleveland, Ohio as a performing artist for
                        well-known celebrities. This eventually evolved to visual arts and to fine art photography and
                        writing, which is her focus today. Morgan experiments with various techniques in
                        photography and painting, and is known for her unique technique which brings a ‘painterly’
                        style to her photographic work. Morgan has exhibited in solo and group exhibits, and her
                        work resides at the Samuel Dorsky Museum at SUNY/New Paltz, as well as in private
                        collections. She is currently working on a creative book project that will feature a new body
                        of her photographic work and writings, called “Chronicles of America…Places, People and
                        Things: A 50 Year Perspective.” www.leeannemorgan.com

                        Valley, most of Reynold’s work is centered upon the Hudson River and the surrounding
                        mountains, fields, and marshes, painting in plein air. Her work has exhibited in many
                        galleries around the region, including Garrison Art Center, Hudson Valley Gallery, and Image

                        GOALS OF THE YEAR-LONG CELEBRATION

                        Art and Wine share a special affinity, especially in the Hudson Valley. Local
                        wineries are nestled in the landscapes that have inspired artists over centuries
                        with views made famous by painters of the Hudson River School, America’s
                        first art movement. In the Hudson Valley, incredible art and architecture exist
                        side-by-side with beautiful vineyards and farms.

                        By directly promoting Hudson Valley Artists, Wineries, Galleries, and Historic
                        Sites specifically to art and wine aficionados, culinary writers and critics, event
                        planners, broadcast travel and hospitality shows, and travel and tourism
                        professionals, the “Year-long Celebration of Art & Wine” will:

                               – Increase the Hudson Valley’s recognition as a destination for Art, Wine
                                 and Cultural experiences.
                               – Promote tourism, historical sites and the Hudson Valley’s special
                                 events.
                               – Generate positive attention toward the Hudson Valley’s art and wine
                                 community.
                               – Create enthusiastic interest in our sponsor partners and businesses.
                               – Support the work of artists and winemakers of the Hudson Valley.



                        A “Year-long Celebration of Art & Wine” will provide a a unique
                        opportunity to “Pair” your product with an exclusive audience that
