ASA’s Hudson Valley chapter recently sponsored an annual education seminar that featured a special tour of the Norman Rockwell Museum hosted by the museum’s deputy director/chief curator Stephanie Plunkett.

That evening, dinner was held at the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, MA—the same location featured in Norman Rockwell’s famous painting “Freedom from Want”. Afterwards, chapter members got into the spirit by posing for a homage portrait.

Clockwise: Bob Connelly, ASA (Chapter Vice-President) and wife Sallie, Sandy Negus, Danielle Thomson (Chapter Secretary), Harriett Watts (Guest), Susan Golashovsky ASA (Regional Governor), Barbara Sussman AM (Chapter Vice-President) , Gary Snowdon ASA (Chapter President), Charles Flint (Guest Speaker), Susan Snowdon.

The next day there was a visit to Charles Flint Fine Art & Antiques where Charlie and Joy Flint hosted refreshments while giving a tour of their gallery. Immediately following, the Flints’ had everyone back to their home to see their personal collection of art and antiques which focused on Shaker. Charlie is a respected authority/authenticator of Norman Rockwell paintings and has built one of the largest private collections of photographs of Norman Rockwell’s life in the Berkshires. Charlie was also a three-year director for Mount Lebanon New York Shaker Village.
