Current Exhibition-Imbedded
GalleryBar and Salon Ciel presents "Imbedded"
With this exhibition, Salon Ciel sent a challenge to circles of
emerging artists around town: reinvent your landscape by depicting

The Hudson Valley is in a state of accelerated renewal. Considering most of this
pristine region is within a few hours of NYC and will work with most any budget, you
will have no excuse but to pamper yourself! Whether you go by Metro North railroad
(
www.mta.info/mnr), and/or hop on your bike when you arrive, you will find so much
to do so close to home. For a day trip or a weekend getaway, the Hudson Valley is the
place to be!
In today’s stressful times, it is good to know you can get away, if even for the day, to
enjoy the splendor of the seasons.
Spring is my favorite time of year upstate New York. Watching the leaves change,
picking a flower or an apple..
