I was honored to jury the 2019 exhibition, Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Region, held this year at the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, NY. The AMHR, as it is known, is one of the longest running regional shows in the country. Over 400 people attended the opening on October 12, at which Bill Mckibben, author and creator of 350.org, spoke about art and climate change.
Many thanks to David Brickman for his art blog, Get Visual, and his wonderful review posted November 16, 2019.

I am excited to contribute work to this summer-long show which opened on Friday in Bolton Landing, NY —
Landscapes Lost and Found: Two Centuries of Art from Bolton Landing opens at the Bolton Historical Museum on May 25 and will remain on view through Columbus Day.
Artists represented include painters of some of the earliest American landscapes, members of the Hudson River School and the American Pre-Raphaelite movement and twentieth century modernists such as David Smith, Dorothy Dehner and John Graham. Prominent 21st century artists will complete the show.
Works by David Smith include six landscapes of Bolton Landing painted in the 1930s, which have never been exhibited before.
An auxiliary show, Sculptors’ Studies from the Prospect Mountain Show, which includes drawings and other materials related to the 1979 outdoor Prospect Mountain Sculpture Show: An Homage to David Smith, is installed in an adjacent gallery.
An opening reception will be held on Friday, May 24 from 5 to 7 pm.
The Bolton Historical Museum is located at 4924 Lakeshore Drive, Bolton Landing.
