Press Release

Caldwell Gallery Hudson is pleased to open our new exhibition “Spring – The Return Of Color”, featuring both traditional representations of the season as well as many abstract works whose color palette reflects the tones so often seen this time of year. More than a dozen canvases are new to the market.

Of particular note are a 1952 canvas by Paul Burlin, a major Joseph Solman NYC scene from 1939, and important 1963 canvas by the recently deceased John Grillo. 

This exhibit will run through June 1 and include pieces by regionalist painter Paul Sample, American impressionist Allen Tucker, and a rare early work by Ogden Pleissner. It will also showcase artworks by Edward Potthast, Hans Burkhardt, David Burliuk, Jimmy Ernst, Beatrice Wose Smith, Russell Cowles, Carl Holty, and Jenny Magafan.
