"Big Shoes to Fill," Kate Hamilton’s current installation at Thompson Giroux Gallery in Chatham through March 9, creates a world where the giants seem to have left in a hurry, and their crumpled clothes were hung as a warning—these ceiling-height ghosts of garments stilled like sails in the horse latitudes.

Kate Hamilton lives and works in New Paltz, and has been studying and practicing the language of clothes for years, as a hat maker, costumer, and artist. Last summer, with Marian Schoettle, she co-created and produced DaDa Spill, a multi-media, multi-artist project staged underground in the Widow Jane Mine below Rosendale.
