Out of This World at ALB

Chris Harvey

"Seven Columns of Commerce and Pleasure" by Chris Harvey

One of our favorites things about the Albany International Airport is the upstairs art gallery. We appreciate the fact that a place that's all about hustle and bustle has a space that's dedicated to pausing and thinking.

If you have some time during your next swing through ALB, the current exhibit is worth checking out.

The exhibit is titled "Out of This World." From the gallery's exhibition page:

Within this world and all around us march the familiar products of manufacture, interceded by the tenacious sprouting of life in all its variability. By entangling the stuff of industry with elements in nature, artists are often able to describe territories that are unearthly. The seven artists featured in this exhibition tap the reservoirs of our known world to create forms that we feel both acquainted with and transported by.

In addition to installation pictured above, here are a few other pieces that we enjoyed from the collection:

ALB gallery Sperber

"Spock 3" by Devorah Sperber


ALB gallery Maestre

"Imp" by Jennifer Maestre

The gallery is located on the third floor, just before the observation room. If you're looking at the security checkpoint, the steps are to the left -- by the waiting area.

Comments

I have to admit, I enjoy the art exhibitions at the airport, too. It makes waiting to pick up someone SO much more tolerable--plus, the art is usually very unique!

Just went their yesterday. This is one of their most fun exhibits. My kids (ages 7 and 10) loved it, especially the creatures made out of pencils.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
