The Hudson Valley Art Association (HVAA) was founded in 1928 by artists of the Hudson Valley Region in the studio of Jasper Cropsey (1823-1900), one of the most celebrated American landscape artists of the Hudson River School.
For many years the Association functioned as a local art society. Later it became regional – drawing exhibitors from the New England States, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania – growing in strength and importance until it is now a national non-profit organization.
No forms of distorted artwork are accepted by the Hudson Valley Art Association at their exhibitions. It is the aim of the Association to preserve and encourage the character, knowledge, craftsmanship and respect for natural form, color and design which distinguish fine painting and sculpture.
HVAA holds an annual exhibition of oils, aqua media, pastels, graphics and sculpture in the exhibition galleries of invitational associations. The show is open to non-members as well as members. Awards totaling more than $17,000 are given for meritorious works.
All proceeds from entry fees are applied toward the cost of the exhibition. Any deficit is paid from membership dues. Many long hours are spent in preparation for a show that has gained wide recognition for both artists and laymen.
The Board of Directors select new members from non-member exhibitors whose work is outstanding and has been accepted into three recent HVAA annual exhibitions and then an invitation is extended for membership.
The HVAA Annual Exhibition jurors are looking for submissions which are original images of representational and traditional realism that display aesthetic appeal and technical skill. You are welcome to view previously accepted artwork from the 2023 exhibition at http://www.hudsonart.org/
