Cocktails on the River
So many invites this Saturday night, luckily they were spread out so we could enjoy them all.
The first was Riverside Art Auction at Garrison Art Center, where the devotees of the center turned out in numbers, young and old all walks of life, all lovers of art. As were those at the Manitoga event, to celebrate the opening of the 2015 Artist in Residence works of Stephen Talasnik. And then another gathering of art lovers at The Pantry Cold Spring for an evening of music by Tall Country. Three very different events with one common denominator, a love of the Hudson Valley and art.
At 4:00 we started at the Garrison Art Center where the annual Riverside Art Auction had begun. Cocktails by the river, beautiful work available for purchase, we would have liked to stayed for the evening dinner, French Grill Sunset Picnic by Chef Pascal Graff of Le Bouchon in Cold Spring, NY.
Next party was at Manitoga, where our friend Chris is on the board, a wonderful event celebrating the opening of the 2015 Artist in Residence works of Stephen Talasnik.

Wonderful food, from Quinn in Beacon that, in its new incarnation, is now serving Japanese Comfort Food on the menu. And there’s Allison Cross attending to every detail, always on the move. A bright light of inspiration.
Fine music by Tall County.
