2016 Artists Of The Mohawk-Hudson Region At The Hyde Collection

The Hyde Collection presents the 80th anniversary of the Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Region. The Hyde marks this special occasion with a campus-wide exhibition juried by Michael Oatman, artist and associate professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. Beyond work for The Hyde’s Wood Gallery, this year, Oatman and the Museum accepted proposals for interventions in Hyde House as well as sculptures on the grounds.

The Mohawk Hudson Regional provides a leading benchmark for contemporary art in the Upper Hudson Valley, and artists living within a 100-mile radius of Glens Falls and the Capital Region are invited to submit works for the juror’s consideration. Founded in 1936, Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region is the oldest running regional juried show in the country. 

Oatman is known for his large-scale collages and installations integrating found, modified, and handmade components, including artifacts of material culture, painting, drawing, and video. He has exhibited extensively in the United States and abroad. 

The exhibition is on view through December 31, 2016.
