The Art of Seed | Hudson Valley Seed Co. 
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

Troy River City | Living with Water in Troy
March 31-April 14 | Main Gallery
Opening Reception: Friday, March 31, 5-9PM


This exhibition explores Troy’s past and possible future as a river city in the Hudson Valley, bringing together historic photographs and aerial imagery that show Troy and its river through time. In addition, new maps, models and speculative scenarios by landscape architecture faculty and students at Cornell University will offer multiple visions for how Troy might remake itself by reclaiming its riverfront and re-imagining itself as a river city. The work has been done over three years in collaboration with Chico Christopher and TAP, Inc., with support from the New York State Water Resources Institute and the Department of Environmental Conservation Hudson River Estuary Program, with support from the New York State Environmental Protection Fund.
