Captain David Crawford House

2017 is New York State’s Year of the Woman (the centennial of women’s suffrage). On Sun Apr 2 the Newburgh Historical Society is opening for the season with a day devoted to the rarely-seen work of three mid-century Newburgh women artists: sculptor, Hazel Brill Jackson and painters, Cecil K. Jennings and May Palmer Hawkins. Local collectors are loaning their art and those who remember the artists will be on hand to talk about them.  The pieces will be displayed on tables and easels around the beautiful 1830 Crawford House. At 2pm artist, Paul Gould, will unveil a bronze by Ms. Jackson. Gould’s family is donating the bronze to the Society’s permanent collection. Raffle tickets will be offered for a watercolor of summer poppies by Cecil Jennings. While the special exhibit will be open for one only day, the sculpted head of Eva Purdy (a local legend in her right), donated by the Gould family, will remain at the Crawford House permanently. Admission.
