Subject: J. Damiani Gallery Returns to Hillsdale

After two decades and two different gallery spaces, the J. Damiani Gallery has left Warren Street in Hudson and is returning to its roots in Hillsdale, NY. The new gallery opens April 1st in a recently renovated space at 8 Anthony Street just behind the IGA supermarket. According to Managing Director and gallery co-owner, Juliette Crill, the return to Hillsdale has been planned for a while.
“The timing for our relocation has been optimum. We were one of the early participants in the Hudson art scene. The J. Damiani gallery opened its doors in 1998. Through the years we watched Hudson become a keystone in the burgeoning Hudson Valley gallery movement, but our roots have always been in Hillsdale. This new gallery space became available, and it just felt right to make the move. We are looking forward to becoming a member of the Hillsdale creative community.”
Artist and gallery co-owner, Joan Damiani has been painting the beauty of Columbia County for over 25 years. “I love to reimagine the rich, rural landscape of our area and scenes of everyday activities of ordinary people. I look for how shadows and light interact with its environment and capture the fleeting moments that people forget to remember.”
Reviewers have referred to Damiani’s style as that of an American Realist painter. Whether it be the quiet serenity of a seascape or barn at sunset or the examination of intricate details in urban architectural scenes, Damiani elevates and creates subdued drama out of commonplace subjects.
The gallery hosts an Opening night reception Saturday, April 1st from 5 to 8 pm. 8 Anthony Street Hillsdale, NY. Small bites and libation catered by app.erativi. For more information, visit Jdamianigallery.com
