Worlds of Wonder, the 2014 edition of the annual Hudson Valley Artists exhibition, explores work that creates connections across time, media, and subject, and answers the questions: "To what extent do science and nature, architecture, design, and history weave in and out of contemporary art making?" and "How do artists bring together disparate elements into a singular work, or a cluster of related images or objects?" Focusing on the laboratory-like 
environment of the artist studio and the exploration and curiosity that is at the heart of many artistic practices, this exhibition will create its own space for discovery in unexpected places while highlighting new art from the region, paying homage to the cabinets of wonder that were precursors to museum collections.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, June 21 from 5-7 p.m.

Ian Berry, Curator and Dayton Director of the Tang Museum at Skidmore College, will give a gallery talk on Saturday, June 21 at 4 p.m.
