The Fence Show is an annual opportunity for all Arts Center members to display their work in our galleries. This year we accepted and displayed 335 pieces, including paintings, drawing, photography, fiber arts, stained glass and sculpture. There is also a separate category for young artists in grades K-12, with a total of 53 student pieces this year. Robert R. Shane, Ph.D., Art History & Criticism, served as this year’s juror for the Fence Show. He identified 42 adult and 13 student works from various artists from the Fence Show to be later assembled into the Fence Select, an exhibition that runs for several weeks after the salon-style show is dismantled.

Fence Show 2013 Best in Show, Philip J Palmieri

Philip J Palmieri’s paintings deal mainly with portraiture and figurative work. His exploration in painting often deals with medical images, drawing on his experience as a physician. He often uses medical text books not only as references but for his painting surfaces as well.

Farms, Food + Photography
August 29 – September 14, 2014
Reception: Friday, August 29, 5-9PM

The Arts Center has partnered again with the Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) for a unique program focusing on farming, food, and photography with both teens and adults. Students will have visited local vegetable, dairy, wheat, and animal farms to learn about farm operation and harvest food with their own hands, while teaching artist and cook Ellie Markovitch will help them understand and appreciate the idea of farm-to-table, working with the students on the farm or back here in our kitchen to prepare a meal with the food they’ve harvested. All the while the students will have documented their time on the farm and in the kitchen while using the Digital Arts Studio at The Arts Center to create a series of photographs, recipes, blog posts, and other media related to their experience. The Arts Center will host a food tasting and official exhibition featuring the students’ work at the August Troy Night Out to remind the community of the important role farms and food play in our lives.

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