Jay Lalonde is an artist from Ulster Park NY with an avid interest in sailing, the Hudson River, and sculpture. Lalonde’s interest in art began at a young age when he started drawing, then building models, and then bicycles. When he was twelve years old his mom had him take an adult studio Art class. This began a journey of realization that his thoughts when put into drawings, paintings, and sculptures were special. In his 20’s Jay took a job at Tallix Art Foundry in Beacon NY and began working with artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Alexander Lieberman, David Cerulli, Greg Wyatt, and Frank Stella. He has worked with Frank Stella for the past 30 years on endless works and projects, and has been truly inspired by Frank Stella and many other artists. With these influences his work has progressed from drawings to paintings to sculpture.

Hudson Valley Sculpture Regatta is a series of intricate, wall-hanging sculptures. Inspired by his appreciation for the Hudson River and the art of sailing, these stainless steel creations are evocative of the wind and waves, and of the ships that navigate them.
