Shaker Museum announced its latest exhibition Fringe Selects in collaboration with artist/designer Katie Stout opening on December 11, 2020. Through a selection of Shaker material chosen by Stout from the Museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition explores the breadth of Shaker objects by taking a closer look at the objects on the “fringe”—colorful, ornamental, and less well-known than the minimalist, iconic Shaker pieces.

Also on view are two new chairs by Stout created as a response to her exploration of Shaker material culture.

The exhibition is presented in Shaker Museum’s pop-up space located at 17 Main Street in downtown Chatham, donated by Columbia County resident, Jack Shear, and near the future home of Shaker Museum’s permanent facility.

The Tenth Magazine Celebrates Hudson Valley Issue w/ Exhibition at Hudson Hall

Hudson Hall opens the 2018 season with an exhibition curated by the Hudson-based creative team behind ‘The Tenth’, a biannual publication documenting the history, culture, ideas and aesthetics of the black LGBTQ community. The exhibition, The BlkQueer Romantics, celebrates the launch of The Tenth’s fifth volume, and is an exhibition highlighting the artists who have contributed to The Tenth‘s fifth edition. This edition is a homage to the natural landscape and the architectural structures of the Hudson River Valley – from Hudson’s Dr. Oliver Bronson House and a quaint guest house in the Catskills to The Vanderbilt Mansion at Hyde Park, places where many African American artists and entertainers escaped at the turn of the 19th-century.

Taking its name from a W.E.B DuBois essay titled “The Talented Tenth”, The Tenth champions black LGTBQ voices via photographic essays, in-depth interviews, prose, and events. Since the magazine’s first edition was released in 2015, it has received widespread acclaim for its presentation of counter narratives of black gay and bisexual lives, and for its ability to push boundaries and offer stunning visual imagery of and by black LGBTQ artists. The Tenth has curated launch events, exhibitions and symposium with notable partners such as MoMA PS1, the Ace Hotel, and the Provincetown Film Festival, where they partnered with HBO® to present UNTAGGED, a photography exhibition that explored the relationship between perceived and projected identity and to celebrate the premiere of HBO’s new documentary, Suited.

The exhibition opens in Hudson Hall’s Center Hall Gallery with a party on Saturday, February 10th from 5-7pm. The exhibition is on view until March 18.

Hudson Opera House Exhibit, ‘No Parking: The Alleys and Garages of Hudson’

noparking_web_featured-470x260There’s an interesting photography exhibit at the Hudson Opera House right now. ‘No Parking: The Alleys and Garages of Hudson’ features three local artists, Lisa Durfee, William Hellermann, and Peter Spear, and their photographs that capture the hidden beauty in Hudson over the past 20 years.

“While major roads such as  Warren Street offer a panoply of architectural spectacle to enjoy, No Parking tells the story of those small streets that run parallel to the larger thoroughfares, and the hidden barns, garages, storehouses, and studios nestled along them.”
