Shaker Museum presents the work of Caitlin MacBride in pop-up exhibition “Palm to Poplar” through 4/28 in Kinderhook

Shaker Museum’s first pop-up exhibition of 2024 is entitled “Palm to Poplar: Devotional Labor.” It is an exhibition of original paintings by Caitlin MacBride currently on view in a gallery at Kinderhook Knitting Mill in Kinderhook, New York through April 28. “Palm to Poplar” showcases MacBride’s paintings of Shaker objects alongside pieces from Shaker Museum’s archive that have inspired her.

I met artist MacBride and Shaker Museum Director of Collections and Research Jerry Grant in the gallery in Kinderhook.
