Creations: Connections & Collections

Tags: Gallery News

Opening October 15, Albany Center Gallery will be showing a special exhibit: Creations: Connections & Collections. This show brings together over 60 works by ACG members and their artist friends, making for a truly eclectic exhibition featuring various media. Creations returns in its second year to promote and commemorate the ability artists have to inspire other members of the local community.


The exhibit will also feature over 30 works from the private collections of local arts patrons. Through the years, these patrons of the arts have amassed collections that feature diverse and unique pieces from local, regional and internationally renowned artists. This event is a rare opportunity to own these select pieces for an affordable price. The work includes traditional, modern and contemporary art in a variety of media such as works on paper, oil paintings, mixed media, prints, sculpture, and photography. 


Creations: Connections & Collections will be on view from October 15 to November 8, 2019. An Artist Reception will be held on Friday, November 1, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Both the show and the reception are free and open to the public. Creations: Connections & Collections is sponsored by ACG Premier Sponsors Howard Hanna & David Phaff Real Estate Services, as well as Maureen Devine, Albany Parking Authority, Honest Weight Food Co-op, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the Albany Wine & Dine for the Arts Festival
