Since the 1960s, hundreds of artists, including Isamu Noguchi, Nancy Graves, Roy Lichtenstein, and Martin Puryear, have worked with metallurgist and foundry owner Dick Polich to realize their visions in bronze, aluminum, steel, and iron. His foundries, first Tallix and now Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry, have produced the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. and other public monuments. Dick Polich: Transforming Metal into Art is the first exhibition to explore this Hudson Valley master's significant impact on contemporary art. Forward-looking and always willing to try something new, Polich has fostered artistic experimentation and innovation for the past half century. The exhibition explores the creative process of sketch to monument through the presentation of major works of sculpture and techniques in industrial sculpture production.

We are currently seeking names and contact information for the many artisans and other employees who were employed at the following foundries: Tallix Foundry, Peekskill; Tallix Foundry, Beacon; Polich Art Works, Newburgh; Polich Tallix Inc. Fine Art Foundry, Newburgh. For more information: http://www.dorskymuseum.org/

Worlds of Wonder
, the 2014 edition of the annual Hudson Valley Artists exhibition, is curated by Ian Berry, Dayton Director of the Tang Museum at Skidmore College. For Worlds of Wonder, artists submitted work that creates 
connections across time, media, and subject. To what extent do science and nature, architecture, design, and history weave in and out of contemporary art making? 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.


The participating artists are: Fern T. Apfel, Gabe Brown, Loren Eiferman, Adriana Farmiga, Holly Hughes, Kay Kenny, Mison Kim, Mike McGregor, Reuben Moore, Douglas Navarra, Stephen Niccolls, Caitlin Parker, Sean Sullivan, Judy Thomas, Linda Stillman, and Angela Voulgarelis.

Since 1999, nearly 100 artists of color working in the photographic arts have created vital images during summer residencies at the Center for Photography in Woodstock. Participants in the Woodstock Artist-in-Residency Program donate one or more prints to CPW's permanent collection, forming a corpus that captures the shifting currents of contemporary photographic practices. Acclaimed author and art historian Sarah Lewis will select a range of outstanding photographs, videos, and artist books from the collection, which is held on extended loan at the Dorsky Museum.
