Anne Gabriele is a visual artist as well as a commercial photo stylist based in New York City and Catskill, NY. She studied photography at The School of Visual Arts in NYC, and has been exhibiting her work around the country ever since. Gabriele was a finalist selected to exhibit in the FotoFest 2004 Biennial in Houston, TX.

Anne is excited to be pairing with Hudson-Chatham Winery for the Celebration of Art and Wine program and is inspired by the unique landscapes there.

Having photographed seascapes for many years, I was inspired by the juxtaposition of the rye fields and the vineyard at Hudson-Chatham. The landscape has a quiet grace and similar qualities of the surf meeting the shore.

After many years working with Polaroid materials, last year the Polaroid Corporation stopped manufacturing the film I have been accustomed to using for my works. For the pieces I will create at Hudson-Chatham, I will use my remaining supply of Polaroid film to photograph the winery while exploring alternative processes to create unique works.

Hudson-Chatham Winery is the dream of Carlo and Dominique DeVito, both publishing professionals who have long shared a love of wine. This exciting winery, which specializes in small hand-made batches of wine, is dedicated to the richness of the Hudson River Valley, particularly its wine, agriculture, literature, art, history, and many other attractions that make it a rich and special region. The Hudson-Chatham Winery, located between the historic towns of Hudson and Chatham, is the first winery in Columbia County.

As well as creating fine artisanal wines, the DeVito family and many valued friends have worked hard restoring the winery’s grounds and its prestigious circa 1780 farmhouse. The winery features hand-crafted wines, cheeses and desserts, and includes vineyard tours and a gazebo with scenic views. Visiting Hudson-Chatham Winery will inspire all your senses.
