Keeping it Local

One of Tony Thompson's phenomenal landscapes we are hoping to feature in the Lobby.

We were trying to decide on what type of artwork we wanted to feature at The Barlow.  Photographs?  Paintings?  Commercial prints?  We wanted artwork that would both capture the spirit and beauty of the area as well as be artwork created by someone locally.  But who?

We then got a call from Tony Thompson, a Hudson artist whose painting we are so happy to have in our own home.  Tony wanted to know if any of this paintings would work at the Hotel.  After accepting an invitation to peruse his work I was thrilled to find several pieces that would work brilliantly.  Understand that Duncan and I are huge landscape art fans and the pieces Tony showed me are exceptional.

Tony has several large landscape paintings we are planning on featuring in the Lobby behind the reception desks.  These pieces highlight the beauty of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains with stunning use of light and depth.  These will be the first thing most guests will see upon entering The Barlow and we are so thrilled Tony has agree to allow us to feature his work so prominently.

We are sure that Tony’s incomparable style will mesh so perfectly with the style of the Hotel.

 

Tony Thompson's landscape paintings are perfect for the Hotel Lobby.
