Clearly, websites were a century away into the future however, this represented a time where inspiration was molded inside the veins of artists on a western slope of a hill. Few if any cars, simply horses, buggy’s, farmland, and trees overlooking the bucolic Hackensack river out onto the Meadowlands and beyond into the mountain backdrop off in the distance. It represented the antithesis when compared to the insanity of New York just across the Hudson River. A literal refuge just a mile away providing a wonderful setting for artists to relax , be inspired and commune.
The Ridgefield Art Colony is rich in art history and represents a story of miraculous proportion as told by it’s curator, Ms. Galindez. ”It’s my intention to provide a virtual home on line for student artists the world over to place their names among the walls of art history.
The launch date of the fully operational website is slated for May of 2014 and will provide students the world over a virtual museum, a meeting place, a place of inspiration and a place of pride to hang your work alongside the work of the many masters who biography is so much a part of the Ridgefield Art Colony.
