Established in 1991, before Hudson was a booming mecca for art and culture, Carrie Haddad Gallery organizes seven spectrum-spanning group exhibits per year in a 3,000-square-foot gallery space at 622 Warren Street. "Mortals, Saints, and Myths" will run from June 12-July 28. "We have a very special group of Hudson Valley artists who focus on the human figure as a subject," says Linden Scheff, director at the gallery. "We like to dedicate at least one exhibit a year to the figure and the bizarre narratives that often tag along."

 

Poughkeepsie-based artist Carl Grauer will be paying tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion with "The Lavender Temple of Their Most Fabulous." This new series depicts iconic figures in the LGBTQ+ rights movement such as James Baldwin, Barbara Gittings, and Audre Lorde as saints. Not all the works are styled after the Catholic fashion; Harvey Milk gets a Hindu deity treatment, with a halo and six arms, each holding his modern weapons, like a megaphone. Grauer will convert one room at Carrie Haddad into a shrine-like space, with a moving-yet-ironic, sanctified atmosphere.
