Hudson -- The crowd was steady as it moved through the midway of artists' tents at the 33rd annual Art on the Green Aug. 24 and Aug. 25.
Organizers estimated more than 4,000 people attended the art show with more than 150 artists participating with displays of paintings, sculpture, glasswork, woodwork, jewelry, pottery, woodcarving, weaving, enamel, leather, photography, garden decor and more.
It was an opportunity to meet the artist, ask questions and purchase favorite pieces.
Connie Mamas of Hudson came especially to meet artist Hilary Sheeter, who specializes in drawings and water media, especially of Hudson.
"I've admired his artwork and wanted to get a print for my living room," Mamas said.
The Hudson Society of Artists sponsored the event to highlight original artwork, which was available for purchase.
Each year, applicants' works are juried to maintain freshness and professional quality.
In addition, music was provided by Carl Hlavaty, who played a hammered dulcimer.
