SUMMER EXHIBITS AT THE ARTS CENTER OF THE CAPITAL REGION



The Arts Center of the Capital Region is pleased to announce our Summer 2019 exhibits including artworks by Niki Haynes, Mary Sherwood, and our Fence Select member artists.

Fence Select – June 17 - July 7

The Fence Show got its name when members’ artwork was exhibited on the iron fence surrounding Washington Park in Troy, the original location of the Arts Center. This year we received 412 pieces of artwork from our members. Our Juror, Nicole Hayes is the Curator at Art Omi, The Fields Sculpture Park in Ghent, NY. She identified over 65 pieces of artwork to move ahead and become the Fence Select. This year’s Best in Show Winner is Jamie Rodriguez. Congratulations Jamie and to all of our member artists who made it into Fence Select! The exhibit reception for Fence Select will take place in our Main Gallery during Troy Night Out, Friday, June 28 5-9pm.

Drawing on Experience: Mary Sherwood – June 17 - September 4

2018 Fence Best in Show Artist

There is beauty in simplicity and the common rhythms of our lives. Drawing on Experience communicates those thoughts along with the admiration for the enduring nature of life and the human figure. The artist’s fascination with people leads to capturing their gestures or expressive lines. Her landscapes involve imagination and memory of a place from life. These images are records of her experience; a personal non-verbal journal.

Mary Sherwood lives in rural upstate N.Y. She is an exhibiting member of the East Bank Arts Alliance, the Colonie Art League, The Saratoga and Capital Region Arts Centers and has been painting and drawing for over 25 years. A public reception for Drawing on Experience will take place in our Wallace & Foyer Galleries during Troy Night Out, Friday, June 28, 5-9pm.

Culture Consumed: Niki Haynes – July 14 - August 30

The Culture Consumed series is the culmination of a body of work which spans the last 15 years. Niki Haynes' intention has been for each piece to stand alone but ultimately resonate together to identify and acknowledge our collective consumption and all it entails, encouraging us to stand back and absorb the big picture, adjust and re-approach.

Niki Haynes currently resides in Troy, NY. Her artwork is a commentary on consumer culture and an exploration of social mores. She attended a Music & Art High School in New York City and later The Cooper Union for studies in fine art. A public reception will be held in our Main Gallery on Friday, July 26, 6-8pm
