Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Region Exhibition

Tags: Gallery News

For the first time in its 85-year history, the Mohawk-Hudson Regional exhibition will be presented at three locations simultaneously: Albany Center Gallery, Albany International Airport Gallery and Opalka Gallery at Russell Sage College. While for decades, the exhibition has rotated among the Albany Institute of History & Art, The Hyde Collection Art Museum in Glens Falls, and The University Art Museum, University at Albany, this year’s reimagined version reflects the spirit of creative innovation that distinguishes our regional arts community. The exhibition call was open to all visual artists residing within a 100-mile radius of Albany, NY and Glens Falls, NY.

Traditionally, the annual Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region exhibition is curated by a single guest juror and presented in a one location. By expanding to include three Albany galleries, with a different juror selecting work for each space, this year’s exhibition will be broader in scope than those of the past, and each iteration will reflect the distinct mission of each gallery and the vision of each juror. Mixed media artist Alisa Sikelianos-Carter selected the work for Albany Center Gallery, curator and artist Tommy Gregory selected the work for Albany International Airport Gallery, and gallerist Pamela Salisbury selected the work for Opalka Gallery.

We were honored and delighted to receive 561 entries by artists from across our region. From those, our jurors selected 143 works of art from 96 outstanding artists. A special thank you to our jurors for this arduous task and to everyone who submitted their work. It was a truly remarkable year!
