Current Exhibitions

The Dorsky’s Tenth Anniversary Year exhibitions and programs have highlighted the museum’s focus on the art and artists of the Hudson Valley, a unique region that has served as a source of inspiration and nourished artistic creation and innovation since the time of the Hudson River School painters.  Current museum exhibitions showcase contemporary artists who live and work in the Hudson Valley as well as work by past masters.
