On February 27th THE GILDED OWL opened it’s fourth show The Mystery of Beauty “Il Mistero della Bellezza” in Hudson, New York.
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.
We are excited to announce that after one year of construction THE GILDED OWL will open it’s doors in Hudson, New York as a gallery of design, fine art, objects, fashion and music. As we countdown to our opening we will begin to preview some of the designers and artists work as well as interior images of the landmarked 1785 house that will soon become our new home.
I first discovered Fromental in 2006 when I was working on a house in Alabama and wanted something special and unusual for a powder room. We were looking at different plaster finishes and hand troweled surfaces but once we saw the intricately embroidered wallpaper called Peace Blossom from Fromental we were sold.
On Thursday, March 7th Bernd Goeckler will host a book signing of the fantastic new publication Fontana Arte by Franco Deboni. The results of a lifetime of collecting lighting, furniture and objects from the famed glass company and three years of writing and assembling these incredible works, Deboni’s book is truly something extraordinary and the most complete document on the companies history and it’s three primary directors.
