Time Travelers, the 2018 edition of The Dorsky’s Hudson Valley Artists series, presents work that engages with the concept of time travel and embraces the slippery notions of time. The works in the exhibition recognize the universal human desire to experience a time other than our own and act as locations for explorations of, or challenges to, the standard chronological sequence.

Moving freely across artistic disciplines and mediums, including textiles, painting, installation, sculpture, performance, and photography, Time Travelers promises to transform the museum into a space-time continuum full of visual pleasures and conceptual delights.
The 11 participating artists, selected from over 290 submissions, are: Michael Bernstein, Lynn Dreese Breslin, Kyle Cottier, Daniella Dooling, Harry Leigh, Mollie McKinley, Alison McNulty, Tony Moore, Yvonne Muller, Antonella Piemontese, and Greg Slick.
This is the ninth year that the Hudson Valley Artists Annual Purchase Award of $3,000 will be used to acquire one or more artworks from the exhibition for the museum’s permanent collection. This Purchase Award is made possible through the Alice and Horace Chandler Art Acquisition Fund. Artists whose work has been purchased in the past include Nestor Madalengoita, Richard Edelman, Deb Lucke, Holly Hughes, Stephen Niccolls, Patrick Kelley, Adie Russell, Elisa Pritzker, Charles Geiger, and Curt Belshe and Lise Prown, among others.
