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 Fence Show is an annual opportunity for all Arts Center members to display their work in our galleries. In 2014, 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. A juror will be selected to curate 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. The Call for Entries brochure will be available in March 2015.


Hudson Valley Seed Packs: Art of the Heirloom

Radiant Radish Seed Pack, by Elizabeth St. Hilaire

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.
