Julie Torres’ dispatches from Hudson, part 1

We were recently surprised to learn that Bushwick artist Julie Torres has decamped from the Brooklyn neighborhood with which she’s long been associated. Now located in Hudson, NY, Torres has been settling into her new home by exploring its art scene. We asked her to send a report on the galleries in the neighborhood, and here are images of some juicy paintings that caught her eye.
