The 41st annual show presented by the Hudson Society of Artists moves to a new location at the Joann Green at the corner of Terex Road and state Route 91.

The show includes painting, sculpture, woodworking, jewelry, metalwork, photography, digital art, ceramics and pottery, glass works and fiber arts and clothing. Admission is free along with parking. Food trucks will provide dining options.

The show has grown from 60 local artists participating since it began in 1980 to include more than double the exhibitors, including those from multiple states, which necessitated the move. The show had grown as well as the trees and landscaping at its former location on the greens in downtown Hudson, according to the event chairperson, Cathy Welner.

The Hudson Society of Artists is dedicated to promoting the arts in the community. Membership is open to anyone interested in the arts and it is not necessary to live in Hudson to be a member.
