80th Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region

MHR Hyde Collection Nasturcium Op 3 2015 by Elizabeth Panzer

Nasturcium Op. 3, 2015 by Elizabeth Panzer.

This year's Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region exhibit, the 80th in the annual series, opens Sunday at The Hyde Collection.

The show is open to artists living within 100 miles of Albany, and rotates among The Hyde, Albany Institute of History and Art, and the University Art Museum at UAlbany. This year's exhibit was curated by artist Michael Oatman and includes 126 works by 106 artists. Blurbage for the show:

MHR features works of art throughout The Hyde's campus -- on the lawn, in the Charles R. Wood, Rotunda and Whitney-Renz galleries, and in the historic Hyde House. "I thought we could do something different by trying to take the emphasis off regionalism and think more about situating our artists in a broader historical framework," said Oatman, who is an artist, professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and juror and curator of this year's MHR.
The result is a sprawling exhibition that features video, collage, mixed media, photography, oil, gauche, sculpture, watercolor, and intervention works. Each work is organized into a conceptual category, themes Oatman saw develop as he juried 520 submissions from 274 artists. Each relates to the history of display: site, vault, salon, cube, mirror/grid, and landview.

The exhibit will be on display through December 31.

While you're at The Hyde, you can also check out the new exhibit of modern art works from the collection recently donated by Werner Feibes and the late James Schmitt.
