While it may be true that you can’t go home again, maybe you can go home to visit, particularly if you’re being honored.
Such is the case with Jason Bard Yarmosky, an internationally renowned figurative painter and a 2006 alumnus of The Art Effect (when it was Mill Street Loft). Jason is one of three honorees at this year’s Art After Dark, The Art Effect’s major annual event, which means that he’ll be returning to his hometown of Poughkeepsie for the festivities on October 24.
While Jason’s work has been exhibited all over the world—including Paris, Brussels, Germany and China—as well as in numerous museums and galleries across America, he got his start here in the Hudson Valley.
During his last two years at Poughkeepsie High School, Jason took drawing classes at Mill Street Loft, then attended the School of Visual Arts in New York, graduating with a BFA in 2010.
