"Ever Rest"


Hudson River School painter Jasper Cropsey, "Artist's residence" named "Ever Rest"
Sunday, I had the great pleasure of attending a reception at the "Newington Cropsey" Art Gallery which is open for special shows or by appointment.
It was a gorgeous day inside and out. I will post more this week.
Thank-you to Kathleen for the kind invitation.

Pamela,
The photo is of "Ever Rest" - the Artist's Residence, belonging to Jasper Cropsey, one of the Hudson River School Painters. The actual museum will be shown in my next post...the grounds are heavenly, situated along the Hudson.
