Our visit with artist Jim Oliveira

FINCH is proud to introduce Jim Oliveira to the Hudson art scene.  A personal friend and an amazing artist who is also a leading Italian art glass expert with his wonderful partner Sara Blumberg.  We are also so incredibly pleased to have them nearby – with Jim’s studio recently moving to Milan NY just east of Red Hook (if you see the “Fork In the Road” sculpture on route 199 – you’re there) from their long-time home in a repurposed New Hampshire bowling alley……

Andrew and I spent a cool March day with Jim and Sara in the Milan studio to discuss his art and select pieces for the upcoming FINCH store opening.  We wanted it all of course – and you can view his work at 613 Warren in Hudson NY.
