Hudson Artists Spring Show & Arts Alive!

Much excitement here in our little hamlet of Hudson, as we celebrate the Town's 150th birthday.

First, the annual spring show of the Hudson Artists will open on Friday evening, June 5 at 7:30 pm.

Thirty-three artists. Two hundred and sixty works in various media.

The show will be held at the Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre, 394 Main Road in Hudson, and will continue from 10 am to 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday, June 6 and 7.

I am pleased to have at least 6 new works in cloth on display, plus greeting cards and unframed paintings.

On the same weekend, a provincial group to which I belong, the English Language Arts Network (ELAN), is staging the first of a series of six Arts Alive! events. Hudson was chosen as a town having a strong English-language community. Later this summer, similar events will be held in Quebec City, the West Island, Knowlton, Huntingdon and Wakefield.

The ELAN mini-festival will include music, theatre, guest authors and artisans. Booths will be set up along Cameron and Main Road, where visitors may browse through the wares presented by craftspeople and small enterprises. The centre of all the action will be a one-minute walk from the Hudson Artists show. Click here for more information about the Hudson schedule of events.

All the local shops will put out their welcome mats to entice newcomers and satisfy their local clientele. Finnegan's Flea Market, a ten-minute drive west of the town centre, will also be abuzz on Saturday, June 6, with fifty or so vendors.

A dozen eateries are within walking distance of this event, so come and plan to spend the day!
