Hyde Collection Hosts Book Launch December 16th (Corrected)
December 16, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
GLENS FALLS — The Hyde Collection continues its celebration of the eightieth annual exhibition by Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region (MHR) with the release of its commemorative-edition catalogue at a Book Launch Event on Friday, December 16, at 5:30 pm. Please join us to meet the artists whose work is included in this long-standing juried show of Contemporary art and have your book signed by juror and curator Michael Oatman.
The 186-page full-color catalogue features essays by Oatman and Hyde Director Erin Coe, an exhibition checklist, images of the 106 works selected for the exhibition, and an ephemeral timeline documenting the show’s eight-decade history. Each artist’s work is featured alongside notes capturing Oatman’s original reaction.
Oatman is a Troy-based artist and professor in the School of Architecture at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute who, with Coe, re-envisioned MHR, the longest-running juried regional show in the United States. The exhibition features 126 works, displayed in three of the Museum’s galleries, on its grounds, and — for the first time ever — in historic Hyde House.
MHR is one of the longest-running juried shows of contemporary art in the United States. This annual exhibition is the shared responsibility of The Hyde Collection, the Albany Institute of History and Art, and the University Art Museum at the University at Albany.
Admission includes a catalogue specially priced for the Book Launch Event at $25. Additional copies of the book are available for $30. Those who do not wish to purchase a book can attend for the Museum’s regular admission price of $15 (free for members).
