New Exhibitions Featuring Local Artists At The Arts Center



The Arts Center of the Capital Region is pleased to announce the opening of its latest exhibitions, Something Familiar, with works by Roger Bisbing and James A. Van Duyne; and Collective Charm: Works by The Arts Center of the Capital Region’s Nuts, Bolts & Beyond Artist/Entrepreneurs. We look forward to presenting these two exhibitions featuring local artists from around the region.

Something Familiar: Roger Bisbing + James A. Van Duyne

September 9 – October 15, in the Main Gallery

Public reception: Friday, September 29, 5-9PM at Troy Night Out

The objects and arrangements depict spatial situations across the collective landscape. Common, recurrent, and variously familiar subjects and situations examined through mutual experiences of permanence, fragmentation, meditation and fleeting cultural environments. “The two artists’ showcase their skills in carpentry in a contemplative journey though architectural visualizations of mixed mediums,” said Belinda Colon, Curator at the Arts Center. “The artists’ functioning space directs the viewer through Van Duyne’s barriers and patterned sculptures to Bisbing’s architectural models of familiar (or not) structural spaces.”
