Arts Center Fence Show Image

Fence Salon, 2015

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 382 pieces, including paintings, drawing, photography, fiber arts, stained glass and sculpture. There is also a separate category for young artists in grades K-12. Julie Lohnes, Curator of Art Collections and Exhibitions at Union College,  served as this year’s juror. Lohnes has curated a smaller show from the Fence Show called the Fence Select, which will be on display for several weeks after the salon style show is dismantled. Best in Show and Runner-up awards will be announced at the reception on May 29th.

“Rokay, I Rill! Your rother eats rat roop!” by Marilee Sousie, 2010

Marilee Sousie precisely jumbles coloring books, animation stills, and movies together to create playful fictional worlds. The fusion of vivid hues and seductive lines combined with the topsy-turviness of the composition allows the artist to explore personal relationships and the emotional responses to these experiences.

Center for Disability Services
October 30 – December 20, 2015 | Foyer Gallery

Each May since 2007, the Center for Disability Services has sponsored an art exhibit highlighting the creativity and talents of consumers of varying ages and abilities from preschool through senior citizen.  Staff members began to exhibit their work starting in 2008, and were incorporated with consumers for an inclusive show beginning in 2010.

The artworks included in this exhibit are selected from a larger show complete with an awards reception that will be held in May 2015 at the Center’s headquarters on S. Manning Boulevard in Albany.  The pieces are selected by The Arts Center’s Director of Exhibits, Sara Boylen, and Directors of Education, Sunny da Silva and Joseph Mastroianni.

The 2015 exhibit is eclectic but highlights images of nature and self portraits, along with abstract color and shapes in a variety of mediums including paint, photography, clay, and found objects.  The Center for Disability Services is proud to partner with The Arts Center of the Capital Region for this exhibit.

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