Opening and Awards Ceremony: Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region, 80th Anniversary

October 29 | Opening and Awards Ceremony: Artists of the
Mohawk-Hudson Region, 80th Anniversary

In the fall of 2016, The Hyde Collection will present the 80th anniversary of the Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Region. The Hyde will mark this special occasion with a campus-wide exhibition juried by Michael Oatman, artist and associate professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. Beyond work for The Hyde’s Wood Gallery, this year, Oatman and the Museum will accept proposals for interventions in Hyde House as well as sculpture on the grounds.
The Mohawk Hudson Regional provides a leading benchmark for contemporary art in the Upper Hudson Valley, and artists living within a 100-mile radius of Glens Falls and the Capital Region are invited to submit works for the juror’s consideration. Founded in 1936, Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region is the oldest running regional juried show in the country.
Oatman is known for his large-scale collages and installations integrating found, modified, and handmade components, including artifacts of material culture, painting, drawing, and video. He has exhibited extensively in the United States and abroad.
The exhibition will take place from October 30 through December 31, 2016. The Hyde Collection is happy to continue its affiliation with the Albany Institute of History and Art and the University Art Museum at the University at Albany as the third collaborative sponsor of this long-standing exhibition, hosted by the three organizations on a rotating basis.
