Every Which Way and Art of the Heirloom

arts center exhibit abe ferraro

We stopped into the Arts Center of the Capital Region this past Friday to catch a look at two fun exhibits currently on display.

Every Which Way
Every Which Way by Abraham Ferraro includes his series of Directions sculptures made of packing boxes and labels, and interactive pieces with giant light switches. The exhibit is colorful and active and fun. That's a pic above.

Hudson Valley Seed Packs: Art of the Heirloom
You already know we're fans of the Hudson Valley Seed Library packages. (And the seeds are good, too!) So it was great to see this traveling exhibit of some of the art from which the package designs draw. There are a few quick examples after the jump.

Both exhibits are up through April 24.





Ferraro's done it again. Looking forward to his talk at The Arts Center on April 24th at 1pm. Maybe we can talk him into brunch at Carmen's and/or a stop at the Troy Kitchen.

Kudos to the Hudson Valley Seed Library for creating beautiful work and adding flowers and food to our gardens.

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
