THE GILDED OWL gallery opening

On Saturday November 22nd THE GILDED OWL gallery officially opened at 105 Warren Street in Hudson, NY.  After exactly one year of renovation and construction Elizabeth Moore and I welcomed over one hundred and eighty five guests to celebrate our inaugural show in the 1785 Federal style house that is a now home to a realized version of our design, art, fashion and music journal. The brilliant Hudson based photographer Tomm Roesch documented our preparations and was on hand with us to capture the opening with his thoughtful eye.  Thank you to all who made the journey to our beautiful new gallery and here’s a glimpse into THE GILDED OWL.

With Giovanna Battaglia on the way to a show in les Tuileries

When I was a kid all I did was look for inspiration; beauty. I religiously flipped through my mother’s monthly Better Homes and Gardens and her occasional Town & Country picking out the prettiest girls, the best dresses and the nicest rooms.

Robert Gerstner and Karl Bradl’s opulent perfume boutique on Christopher Street in the village has an old world patina on the exterior but as you enter the shop your senses are stimulated like no other space I have ever encountered.
