Thomas Locker





ARTIST RECEPTION: Sunday OCTOBER 4, 2009 1-3pm

Exhibit open through November 29, 2009




The Rockefeller Park Preserve Art Gallery, together with Kiesendahl+Calhoun Fine Art, present a series of paintings of THOMAS LOCKER from his book “Hudson: Story of a River” as well as other recent paintings of the Hudson. Thomas Locker’s paintings take the viewer on a sacred journey that illustrate the river as: home for Mahican settlements, the means of exploration by Henry Hudson, a stronghold for the Revolutionary War, a mode for commerce and industrialization, the glorious inspiration for the Hudson River School of painters, and the catalyst for the modern environmental movement. 

The tradition of the Hudson River School of Art has been the inspiration for Thomas Locker’s forty-five years of painting.  The Rockefeller Preserve is the fitting host for this exhibition as it preserves the lands and views along swaths of the mighty Hudson.

Born in 1937, Thomas Locker has been devoted to painting his entire life.  Since the opening of his first solo show at the New York City Banfer Gallery in 1964, Locker has held over fifty exhibitions in both national and international galleries and museums.  Early in his painting career he had the desire to share his love and reverence for nature with children and has done so through his brilliant, prolific work illustrating some thirty children’s books. Loved also by adults these books include the biographies of John Muir, Rachel Carson and stories such as “At the Rivers Edge”.  Locker’s numerous awards such as the John Burroughs Award and the New York Times Award for Best Illustration reflect the high regard for his work. The artist lives and works in the Catskill Mountains and continues to find inspiration in the Hudson River.

    School groups are encouraged to come and see the exhibition and experience the history of the Hudson River through the lens of Thomas Locker.


The Art Gallery at the Rockefeller State Preserve is located on Route 117 in Tarrytown, NY, 1 mile east of Route 9.  The gallery is open daily 9 am – 4:30 pm.  For information or directions, call or visit There is a parking fee of $6.00 per vehicle. For further information about this exhibit, please contact the curator: Audrey Leeds – 201-767-0582 or the Preserve Office – 914-631-1470.
