As a woman, I am kind of ashamed to say I did not know that March is Women's History Month. But I know now, and there are plenty of ways to celebrate women right here in the Hudson Valley. In fact, there is even a film all about Hudson Valley Women, and it's being shown on Tuesday, March 19, from 7 - 9 pm at The Idea Garden 346 Broadway in Kingston.

Local filmmaker Stephen Blauweiss presents an evening of his short films featuring past and present female artists and artisans from around the Hudson Valley. The films showcase a wide variety of styles, disciplines, and mediums, including metalsmithing, indoor & outdoor installations, children’s book illustration, painting, photography, glass work and multimedia constructions. Blauweiss has produced over 75 of these artist profiles; 20 have aired on PBS and many have screened at museums and galleries around the country.

This is a free evening honoring and celebrating the talented women of our region. For more information, check out the facebook page.
