SEPTEMBER is an art gallery, an open space and an on-going practice. The gallery exhibits and supports contemporary artists who are committed to their work for life. SEPTEMBER believes that being receptive to change is essential to the creative process. The gallery provides a platform for exceptional individuals who have not been historically centered with care because of their inherited, chosen or perceived identities—engaging the local community while exhibiting artists from other cities and countries. SEPTEMBER concentrates on visual artists, and collaborates with curators, performers, activists, poets, chefs, writers and other creatives. SEPTEMBER opened in Hudson, NY in 2016, and will be moving to Kinderhook, NY in 2022. Founder/Director Kristen Dodge has been running gallery programming for 20 years, including in Boston, the Lower East Side and Upstate New York.
