Mary Frank: The Observing Heart

February 5 – July 17, 2022

Acclaimed artist/activist Mary Frank has been making art in her Manhattan and Hudson Valley studios for over sixty years. She is an independent spirit who emerged during the years of rising feminism in the early 1970s and has always followed a personal vision distinct from prevailing art world fashion.

BFA & MFA Thesis Exhibitions

April 29 – May 24, 2022

At the end of each semester, the Dorsky Museum is proud to exhibit new artwork by students earning Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees. The thesis exhibitions are the culmination of the students' fine art studies, akin to the final exam, research project, or dissertation required of students earning liberal arts or science degrees.

The Dorsky at 20: Reflections at a Milestone (Part II)

Madonna and Child: A Journey from Conservation to Restoration

March 30 – July 17, 2022

This exhibition will explore, through photographic documentation, the steps taken by art conservator Abigail Mack as she approached the repair of the Dorsky’s Museum’s polychrome relief on wood of the Madonna and Child. The story of how the work evolved from a standard  art conservation treatment to a restoration project will be highlighted.
