Artists on the Street at Historic Huguenot Street

Historic Huguenot Street has announced the return of Artists on the Street, an all-day plein air event showcasing the talents of nearly 20 renowned Hudson Valley artists, including Kevin Cook, Daisy Deputhod, Carolyn Hutchings Edlund, Alan McKnight, Marlene Wiedenbaum, and others. The annual event takes place on the second Saturday in August each year, this year on Aug. 12 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. It is an opportunity for the public to watch and engage with local artists as they work, creating paintings inspired by the landscape of the Huguenot Street National Historic Landmark District. This year’s event has been expanded to celebrate a wider variety of arts and culture. Maps will be available denoting the location of each artist participating across the site. Ei’s Fries and The Flying Food Truck will be on site for guests’ enjoyment. The all-day event will also feature face painting and an activities tent for children and families. This event is free and open to the public, rain or shine, sponsored by Woodland Pond at New Paltz.

At 4 p.m., visitors are invited to an Artists’ Reception on the Deyo House lawn, during which many of the participating artists will have their works available for sale. Wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be served, and classical musician Eric Roth will perform on a 19th-century guitar. Roth’s interest in period instruments began at SUNY New Paltz, from which he graduated in 1995 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance. In addition to music, Eric has worked as an archivist, historian, and grant writer, including as an Archivist and Executive Director at Historic Huguenot Street.
