From the Hudson River School paintings to minimalist sculpture, the galleries of Hudson’s Warren Street have a ton to offer.

Is it even possible to stop by every gallery in Hudson in a single day? On Warren Street alone, there are over 10 galleries, each with their own visual specialty. The City of Hudson has been an artistic hub in the Valley for decades, so there’s no shortage of work to appreciate.

Read on to learn more about each individual gallery, then plan a day to see your favorites! If you see something you love, be sure to post it on Instagram and tag us @hudsonvalleymag.

Caldwell Gallery

355 Warren Street
Thursday – Sunday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.


Established in 1973, this gallery caters to a range of tastes, “for both beginning and seasoned collectors.” But even if you’re not in the market for a new oil painting, the collection is extensive and well worth a visit. Owner Jay Caldwell is known for sharing his knowledge about the works with gallery-goers, so don’t be afraid to ask questions!

Wednesday – Monday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Carrie Haddad represents art world veterans and emerging talent alike, and this shows in the prodigious range of its work. This space mainly features painting, sculpture, paper works, and photography, with much of the two-dimensional work depicting landscapes or abstractions of nature. Now on display is The Summer Show, which features seven different artists, including Huê Thi Hoffmaster.

For owners Ellen D’Arcy Simpson and Michael Simpson, it was important to create a “welcoming, accessible setting” for visitors to enjoy art by their fellow Hudson Valley makers. Rather than construct the tried-and true “silent, white-walled room,” D’Arcy Simpson Art Works is lively, thanks in part to the constituent works. They fill their space with colorful, energetic paintings and sculptures, so if that’s your jam, be sure to stop by.

Davis Orton Gallery

114 Warren Street
Saturday – Sunday, 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.


Karen Davis—co-owner and curator of Davis Orton—is a photographer herself, so it’s no surprise this gallery boasts one of the most impressive photo collections in the Hudson Valley. In addition to photographic prints, Davis Orton displays mixed media work and artist-published photobooks.

The New Gallery

610 Warren Street
Thursday – Sunday, 12-5 p.m.


The New Gallery is where to go to discover your next favorite artist. Such is the case with the current exhibition of Iranian muralist Mirza Hamid (“often he’s referred to in his home country as ‘The Banksy of Iran’”). His works draw from the tradition of primitivism, using red earth pigment to depict brutally simple scenes of power and the relationship between humans and nature.

Pamela Salisbury Gallery

362 ½ Warren Street
Thursday – Monday, 11 a.m.  – 6 p.m.


Contemporary art lovers will feel right at home at Pamela Salisbury Gallery. The work on display represents a range of mediums, though the sculptures stand out as particularly compelling. Don’t miss the upcoming exhibition, “Still Life and the Poetry of Place,” which will be installed on September 3 and even features a photograph at the Olana State Historic Site.

Peter Jung Fine Art

512 Warren Street
Thursday – Monday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Stop by Peter Jung to view the collection, which places an emphasis on oil paintings from 1850–1950. Many of the works from this period derive from the Hudson River School, so you’ll have the occasion to brush up on your local art history.

Shakespeare’s Fulcrum

612 Warren Street
Open Daily, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.


This gallery doesn’t belong to Shakespeare, but rather Tery Fugate-Wilcox, a painter and sculptor whose work comments on the temporality of art objects. Much of the art on display is his own, with additional works by the likes of Richard Thatcher, Anthony Reason, and more.

Susan Eley Fine Art

433 Warren Street
Thursday – Monday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The first thing you’ll notice about this gallery is how gorgeous the building is—a brick façade frames large windows, offering passersby a peek at the work on display. This space was originally a “pandemic pop-up”—Eley also has a gallery space in the Big Apple—but has swiftly become a staple of the Hudson Valley art scene.

Turley Gallery

98 Green Street
Friday – Sunday, 12-5 p.m.

To experience Turley Gallery, you’ll have to actually venture off Warren Street. But its location is not the only thing that makes Turley stand out in the Hudson art scene—its director and eponym, Ryan Turley, prefers artists who “push the boundaries of their respective mediums” and innovate within the contemporary art movement.

510 Warren Street Gallery

510 Warren Street
Friday – Saturday, 12-6 p.m.; Sunday, 12-5 p.m.


In 2010, a gaggle of 14 artists combined their time, money, and energy to open 510 Warren Street. Over a decade later, members have come and gone, but the gallery’s commitment to the collective good of the Hudson art scene remains. The work on display rotates frequently, ranging from photography to collage to painting and everything in between.
