About Terenchin

BLOG: LIVING COLLECTION

IMG_1392Terenchin is a collection produced by Patrick Terenchin. The gallery’s mission is to discover compelling works of art and present them to collectors and interior design professionals. The collection is available to view at the Warren Street retail space in Hudson NY, cultural destination of the Hudson Valley.

Hudson is a city blessed with an authentic evolution, and shaped by a specific history and geography.  Visit us, and you will find a common vision and sensibility shared by people who have chosen to make lives here. The gallery reflects these values in one of its main objectives: to rediscover and reevaluate forgotten or little known artists of the 19th and 20th century. On the gallery walls, works by unknowns are positioned beside those with signatures you will immediately recognize. The intention is to suggest that with the passage of time, disparate artistic motives and career trajectories make sense  in the correct context. The passage of time adds additional layers of meaning to works of art and reveals where they intersect.  Terenchin is a setting in which to experience old work in a new way and make your own connections.

A strong piece evokes a narrative. It can conjure a setting, a story, and resurrect the spirit of a historical moment.

Relevance. Meanings change, but time’s passage has only made the object in question somehow more complicated and interesting.

Art is an assertion. It can be an invitation, argument, seduction or a hybrid of these strategies. Whatever the mode, it has to be confident and persuasive.
