Recipients of the Second Annual Arts Center Emerging and Established Artist Awards in 2014, McDaniel and McQueen will assemble an exhibition that explores the dialog between their works in sculpture and installation. The two artists work in repetition within their chosen materials, meticulously creating pieces that concentrate on form and texture. The 2014 Emerging and Established Artist Awards were made possible through the generous support of Karen + Chet Opalka and The Marcelle Foundation.


Hudson Valley Seed Packs: Art of the Heirloom
January 24 – February 19, 2015
Reception: Friday, January 30, 5-9PM


Radiant Radish, by Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson

Artists are cultural seed savers, selecting which kernels of beauty, color, and form to keep alive and pass on to future generations. Each year, the Hudson Valley Seed Library commissions contemporary artists to interpret a distinctive selection of the heirloom varieties in our seed catalog. Each work of art becomes a unique seed pack that celebrates the beauty, diversity and cultural importance of the heirloom seeds held within each pack.

5th Annual Day 2 Day Print Exchange
January 24 – March 22, 2015
Reception: Friday, January 30, 5-9PM

Poster Print Exchange

The Day 2 Day Print Exchange is an annual call for artists with a concentration on printmaking. Global participants are invited to submit 12 identical prints to be sorted and redistributed. In return, each artist receives 10 different prints from different artists around the world! Each year a show is held to display one of the additional prints to be sold for charity. This year’s contributions will be donated to the food bank in Troy, NY.


The exhibits program at The Arts Center is sponsored by NYSCA, New York State Council on the Arts.
