Join the Hastings-on-Hudson Village Arts Commission and the  Newington-Cropsey Foundation for an art exhibition titled: The River Flows Both Ways, celebrating the enduring and ever-renewing romance with the Hudson River, muse to countless explorers, writers, and artists. Concurrently, it is intended to shine a bright light on Hastings’ special connection to the Hudson River School: Jasper Francis Cropsey, the prominent landscape artist who lived and worked in Hastings during the final years of his career.

Alongside these works in the same gallery will be, in words and images, a narrative of the life and work of Cropsey, now firmly regarded as one of the leading lights of the Hudson River School, along with Frederic Church, John Kensett, and Asher Durand.

Public Events

  • Opening Reception: Thursday, September 6, 6-8pm at Hastings Village Hall (Municipal Building, 7 Maple Avenue, Hastings-on-Hudson, New York 10706.) Free and open to the public.


The Hastings Village Arts Commission was established by the Village Board of Trustees to enrich the lives of Hastings-on-Hudson residents through the arts. The Commission promotes the use of the village’s public spaces including the Municipal Building and outdoor venues for display of visual arts of various media and sculpture, and welcomes proposals from artists, sculptors and curators on a rolling year-round basis.  


The Newington-Cropsey Foundation was founded in 1977 for the purpose of preserving and displaying the home and paintings of Jasper F. Cropsey (1823-1900), Hudson River School artist. The Cropsey home, Ever Rest, has been on the National Register of Historic Homes since the early 1970’s. In 1994, the Gallery of Art was completed, enabling the foundation to share with the public the permanent collection of Cropsey’s paintings, in addition to providing exhibition space for temporary and traveling exhibits. The building also houses the archives of Cropsey’s writings and papers, as well as a small research library.
