SPRING 2017 EXHIBITIONS:
The Art of Seed | Hudson Valley Seed Company
March 31-April 23 | Wallace Gallery
Opening Reception: Friday, March 31, 5-9PM
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 Company 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 Co. at hudsonvalleyseed.com.
