The Thomas Cole Site’s Annual “Sunday Salons” Series Returns for its Nineteenth Year on Sunday, January 30

Written By Editor on 1/19/22 | 1/19/22

The Series Presents Timely Conversations on American Art and Landscape with Artists, Writers, Community Members, Scholars, and the Next Generation of Leaders in the Field  

 

Catskill, NY – January 13, 2022 – The Thomas Cole National Historic Site’s annual “Sunday Salons” series returns for its nineteenth year this Sunday, January 30 at 2 pm live on Zoom. The January and February Salons will stream on Zoom and we hope to host the March and April Salons in person at the historic site in Catskill, New York.  

 

The series presents timely conversations with inspiring individuals including artists, writers, community members, scholars, and the next generation of leaders in the field. The conversations explore the contemporary resonance of the artist and early environmentalist Thomas Cole (1801-1848). Cole founded the first major art movement of the United States, now known as the Hudson River School of landscape painting. The themes that he explored in his art and writings—such as landscape preservation and our conception of nature as a restorative power—are both historic and timely.

Thomas Cole National Historic Site  

The Thomas Cole National Historic Site is an international destination presenting the original home and studios of the artist and early environmentalist Thomas Cole (1801-1848). Cole founded the first major art movement of the United States, now known as the Hudson River School of landscape painting. Located on 6 acres in the Hudson Valley, the site includes the 1815 Main House; Cole’s 1839 Old Studio; the reconstructed 1846 New Studio building; and gardens and grounds with panoramic views of the Catskill Mountains. It is a National Historic Landmark and an affiliated area of the National Park System. The Thomas Cole Site’s activities include guided and self-guided tours, special exhibitions of both 19th-century and contemporary art, print publications, lectures, extensive online programs, school programs, the Cole Fellowship, free community events, and innovative public programs such as the Hudson River School Art Trail—a map and website that enables people to visit the places in nature that Cole painted – and the Hudson River Skywalk – a new scenic walkway connecting the Thomas Cole Site with Frederic Church’s Olana over the Hudson River. The goal of all programs at the Thomas Cole Site is to enable visitors to find meaning and inspiration in Thomas Cole’s life and work. The themes that Cole explored in his art and writings—such as landscape preservation and our conception of nature as a restorative power—are both historic and timely, providing the opportunity to connect to audiences with insights that are highly relevant to their own lives.
