Elihu Vedder: Voyage On the Nile
September 24, 2011 – January 8, 2012 

American painter Elihu Vedder journed up the Nile from December 1889 to April 1890 and recorded his fascination with Egypt’s panoramas in artwork presented for the first time in this exhibition organized by the Hudson River Museum.

     Totally breathtaking.  I went yesterday and was transported back to a time when Egypt was still mysterious, and information wasn’t right at our fingertips in the form of the internet.  Artists still served as our windows to the world…

     Go see it.  It’s lit dimly to protect the fragile blue newsprint and colored pencil drawings, and there’s no picture-taking.  A must-see, must-experience in person and runs through January 8, 2012 .
