First Street Gallery is pleased to present a small works invitational exhibition and fundraiser in support of Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. Over a hundred regional and national artists have been invited to participate in the exhibition, along with First Street Gallery artists. Both abstract and figurative art are represented in this select group of paintings, sculpture, prints, mixed media and photography. A commission on all sales will be donated to Clearwater. The gallery will take no commission.
Join us for the Reception on Saturday, December 10, from 3 to 5 pm. A performance by Clearwater’s 'Power of Song' young musicians and singers will kick off the event.
Hudson River Sloop Clearwater was founded in 1966 by music legend and environmental activist Pete Seeger as a nonprofit, member-supported corporation dedicated to preserving and protecting the Hudson River and its tributaries. Since the launch of the sloop Clearwater in 1969, more than half a million people have experienced their first real look at the ecosystem of the Hudson River’s estuary. Clearwater continues to offer innovative environmental education, advocacy programs, and musical celebrations that will inspire and energize the next generation of environmental leaders.

First Street Gallery was founded in 1969. It is an artist-run not-for-profit gallery in the heart of Chelsea. The gallery's professional artists are a stylistically diverse group who employ a variety of mediums and techniques: drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and mixed media. Most commonly explored subject matter includes landscape, still life, and the figure, as well as mythic, personal, historical or political narratives.
