On October 30, 2014, SUNY New Paltz Professor Emeritus, William B. Rhoads, led a walking tour of the campus, Village of New Paltz and Historic Huguenot Street for students of Prof. Carso’s Art of the Hudson Valley.
There is much more exhibition space, so about 400 of the museum’s 5,000 works will be on show at any one time. The display is arranged bottom to top: the basement houses six galleries showing studio work. The ground floor is devoted to early work, and the first and second floors to that of the 1920s, ’30s and the war period. The top floor is newly opened to the public, and displays some 50 paintings Picasso owned by other artists – from a Chardin still life to a full-size Renoir study for a finished painting now in Philadelphia’s Barnes Collection.
Professors Wolf and Heuer greeted more students than ever for Open House, held on Saturday, October 25. Check out our new slide show featuring the activities of the Art History department

Art History Department Chair, Kerry Dean Carso, will give a talk, Landscapes of Nationalism and the Roots of Conservation in 19th-Century America, as part of the celebrations for Wilderness 50. Learn about American landscape paintings of the period and how they relate to both the formation of national identity and the roots of the conservation movement.
Four works by major artists of the Hudson River School were issued as postage stamps by the U.S. Postal Service in August 2014. They are the 12th issuance in the series, American Treasures.
When the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz exhibited The Hudson River to Niagara Falls: 19th-century American Landscape Paintings from the New-York Historical Society, back in 2009 during the Hudson 400 celebrations, the Museum and the Art History Department organized a companion symposium Revisiting the Hudson: Nineteenth-century Landscape Painting in Context.
