      For over a century Woodstock has been a home for creative people. Naturally some were drawn to each other and paired up, and a special type of relationship was created when both members of a couple were active artists. This exhibition includes works by eight artist couples who lived, worked, and socialized in Woodstock, and was curated by eight students at Bard College. It will give a sense of the variety of styles and temperaments that flourished in the art colony through the unique perspective of artists who made their personal artistic statements while sharing their domestic lives. The works in the exhibition are from the permanent collection of the Historical Society of Woodstock, supplemented by generous loans from the Arthur Anderson Collection.

      The Historical Society of Woodstock is located on lower Comeau Drive in Woodstock.  Parking is available in the lower Comeau parking lot. As always, admission is free. For more on Woodstock history visit Historical Woodstock on Facebook. Your support of local history is appreciated.
