RHINEBECK, N.Y. – Art isn’t the only thing that will be going on at the upcoming Rhinebeck Arts Festival; there will be music, gourmet food, wine and spirits tastings, craft demonstrations, and family activities as well.
According to organizers, 200 of the country’s best independent artists and craftspeople will be participating in the annual fest.
The Hudson Valley will be well represented with artisans such as Joseph Guida, a Germantown maker of rustic furniture; Larry Chapman, a New Paltz photographer who specializes in Hudson Valley landscapes; Joan Ensminger, an art glass maker from Stone Ridge; Manya Tessler and Roumen Vragov, both of Cold Spring, who make hand-carved rings; and Erin Von Holdt-Gilbert of Saugerties, who makes felted wool bowls.
