PORT JERVIS - The Port Jervis Council for the Arts is planning a bus trip on Sept. 30 to the homes of two noted 19th century Hudson River School artists.
Participants can enjoy guided tours of two Hudson River School painters’ unique homes that are set in the beautiful landscape that inspired much of their art.
The tour starts at artist Thomas Cole’s home, Cedar Grove, in Catskill, then crosses the Rip Van Winkle Bridge two miles away to Frederic Church’s home, Olana State Historic Park in Hudson.
Olana is a designated national historic landmark and one of the most visited sites in the state.
The trip departs from Port Jervis at 8 a.m., returning at about 6 p.m. The cost is $70 per person, which includes transportation, a box lunch, and admission for guided tours of both houses.
Bus seating is limited; reserve early.
For reservations, call Debbie Valentine at Smith Plumbing & Heating in Port Jervis at 856-5325. For questions about the tour, contact Kathi Hylas at 858-7820.
This trip is sponsored by the nonprofit Port Jervis Council for the Arts, which also sponsors scholarships, Art & About, art and history events, and concerts.
