"Big Girl Stretch" Opening at Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center

“Big Girl Stretch” is an exhibition of artist David Andersson’s colorful acrylic portraits. His first solo exhibition, the show is organized around portraits of varying sizes that depict friends and family in intimate, expressive moments. His pieces often take the subject out of their original context, and exaggerate and warp their color profile, working ultimately to create a vibrant image that captures some element of truth about that person. David Andersson is a self-taught visual artist based in Hudson, New York. Until recently, he was the Director of Special Projects for the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, where he helped manage NYC’s grant program for arts and cultural nonprofits. He has spent the past year in Hudson focusing on his art-making. You can find more of his work at: www.dandersson.com
