Seed Pack Image 2016


Cornell’s Bush Delicata, Seed Pack Design by Sarah Paolucci

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. The original artwork is then displayed in a traveling exhibition that has been shown at The Arts Center since 2013. Learn more about this traveling exhibit and the Hudson Valley Seed Library at www.seedlibrary.org. This exhibit is co-sponsored by Capital Roots www.capitalroots.org.

Opening reception: Friday, March 25, 5-9PM

Joanne Van Genderen

The Advocate by Joanne Van Genderen

 

Joanne Van Genderen’s grant project is designed to raise awareness of the impact of human trafficking in our neighborhoods. By giving a voice to this human rights violation, Joanne hopes to increase our community’s support of local programs whose mission is to provide assistance to individuals who have been trafficked or are at-risk of being trafficked in any capacity. The artwork in this exhibit has been created in collaboration with many Schenectady community members who work in various social service fields. After interviewing participants about their work, the narratives served to inform Joanne’s creative process.

Joanne Van Genderen is the recipient of the 2015 Individual Artist Commission for  Schenectady County, a grant program funded by The Arts Center of the Capital Region through the New York State Council on the Arts.
