LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Artrider Productions of Woodstock, New
York,  upon  the  occasion of hosting the Hudson Valley Arts Festival at
Rhinebeck

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize that  the
quality  and  character of life in the communities across New York State
are reflective of the concerned and dedicated efforts of those organiza-
tions and individuals who would devote themselves to the welfare of  the
community and its citizenry; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly  proud  to  commend
Artrider  Productions of Woodstock, New York, upon the occasion of host-
ing the Hudson Valley Arts Festival at Rhinebeck on October  4-6,  2013;
and
  WHEREAS,  The Hudson Valley Arts Festival at Rhinebeck will be a cele-
bration of artistic expression in its many forms with a  main  focus  on
craft and visual art; much more than a craft show, much more than an art
show, it will be a celebration of the very concept of creativity; and
  WHEREAS,  In addition to America's top artists, the Hudson Valley Arts
Festival will present a line  up  of  exceptional  musicians,  live  art
projects,  workshops,  film,  art  demonstrations, children's art activ-
ities, food and more; and
  WHEREAS, This year, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC chose the Hudson Valley  which
encompasses  the  town  of Rhinebeck as one of its international 20 must
see places of 2013; and
  WHEREAS, Artrider, with its 30 years of  experience  producing  large-
scale  fine  craft  shows,  festivals  and events, is collaborating with
Dutchess County Tourism, the Dutchess County Arts Council and the  Wood-
stock  Film  Festival,  acclaimed as one of the top 50 film festivals in
the world, to create the annual Hudson Valley Arts Festival  arts  week-
end; and
  WHEREAS,  It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when organiza-
tions of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to  our  atten-
tion,  they  should  be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
the great State of New York; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commend  Artrider  Productions of Woodstock, New York, upon the occasion
of hosting the Hudson Valley Arts  Festival  at  Rhinebeck;  and  be  it
further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Artrider Productions.
