Greenwich, New York native Jacob Houston has charmed audiences throughout the Northeast with his idyllic land and cityscapes and detailed glimpses into everyday life. With bright colors and enamel-like scenes, he romanticizes the places he travels, re-creating the world as he sees it: full of joy, wonder, and beauty.
Houston’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the region, at LARAC’s Lapham Gallery, Saratoga Arts Center, Washington County Farm Museum, Green Bridge Gallery, Historic Salem Courthouse, and Southern Vermont Arts Center. His reach extends into Vermont and Massachusetts and, increasingly, New York City.
His new exhibition, “A Magical World: The Art of Jacob Houston,” is on view through June 23rd a the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, New York. We are joined by Jacob Houston, Claire Houston, and The Hyde’s Director of Curatorial Affairs and Programming Jonathan Canning.
