In the mid-Hudson Valley, many galleries have come and gone, despite the abundance of both artists and curatorial talent. The Carrie Haddad Gallery, occupying two floors and 3,000 square feet of a building on Hudson’s Warren Street, is the exception. The eponymous owner, who attended Bard College and served on the boards of the Columbia County Council of the Arts, Hudson Development Corporation and Hudson Common Council, has been involved in the city since the 1990s. She opened her gallery in 1991, when Warren Street was practically vacant, its industries mostly moribund.

Twenty-seven years later, Hudson has been transformed. Not missing a beat, Carrie Haddad has kept pace – or rather, led the way – with seven exhibitions a year on its main floor and a rotating selection of photography displayed on the second floor. The gallery also does art consulting, in which its staff collaborates with design professionals and architects across the country. Almanac Weekly’s Lynn Woods interviewed Carrie Haddad last week in her gallery about her business and 27 years of changes, many of which she made happen.
