The Gunks Art Trail Wins Hudson Valley Magazine's "Best of" in the New Arts Initiative Category

High Falls, NY – The Editors of the Hudson Valley Magazine have named The Gunks Art Trail “Best of” in the New Arts Initiative category.

“It’s no secret that the mid-Hudson is home to artists of all types,” writes the magazine on its website. “Viewing the work of our creative neighbors got easier last May with the debut publication of the Gunks Art Trail. This colorful guide gives the locations of museums, galleries, artist studios, libraries — along with restaurants, B&Bs, and other attractions — in the eight communities that surround the Shawangunk Ridge. Paper copies of this fun and funky map are available from Ulster County Tourism, but the online version, which can be found at the Web site below, is a cinch to navigate — and just a click away www.gunksarttrail.com.”

The map covers the communities of New Paltz, High Falls, Stone Ridge, Rosendale, Accord, Kerhonkson, Gardiner, and Highland.

“We are very proud of our region,” says Sevan Melikyan of Wired Gallery. “It boasts a multitude of venues that show the works of local artists and our map is there to recognize their efforts. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to all our sponsors and advertisers for believing in our initiative and making The Gunks Art Trail possible.”

Michele Riddell, director of Unframed Artists Gallery says “We look forward to our second edition of the map, updated and expanded, and to be released in May 2015.”
