“The Hudson River: An Inspiration,” running from September 12th to November 3rd, features the selected works of Joseph Squillante, who has been photographing the Hudson River for 35 years. Drawing inspiration from the 19th century realist painters of The Hudson River School as well as traditional landscape photographers Andre Kertesz, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, and Walker Evans; Squillante seeks to create timeless pieces that engulf the viewer in the detail and peace of the natural landscape allowing for meditation, introspection, and an appreciation for the environment.

Squillante’s reputation among the Hudson River community as a well-respected photographer who cares deeply for his subject has helped him gain repoire and he has been asked to share his photographs at major Hudson River landmarks such as the American Heritage River celebration and the opening of the Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries on the Hudson. His dedication to the Hudson prompted a joint effort with his wife, Carol Capobianco, to found The Hudson River School of Photography, cultivating an appreciation for the Hudson through workshops, slide presentations, in-classroom talks, lessons, exhibitions, and note cards and prints.

In addition to his Hudson River work, Squillante is also a skilled portraiture and still life photographer whose work sold internationally through the photography agency Getty Images, in New York, and through his own studio, Silver Ink®, in Peekskill, NY. He is a member of the American Society of Media Photographers, ArtsWestchester Teaching Artist Roster and the Peekskill Arts Alliance, and has most recently been appointed as a member of the Historic and Landmarks Preservation Board for the City of Peekskill. A number of his photographs are in the permanent collections of the New-York Historical Society, Museum of the City of New York and the Albany Institute of History and Art.

At the same time as “The Hudson River: An Inspiration” exhibit, an extended viewing of “Legends of Summer” will also be available for viewing at the gallery.
