The Stories We Tell: Hudson Valley Artists 2015
June 20 - November 8, 2015
Alice and Horace Chandler Gallery/North Gallery
The Stories We Tell: Hudson Valley Artists 2015 takes as its focus the narrative form of contemporary art and examines how stories shape our experience and our understanding of the world. Instinctively, we are all storytellers merging fiction with non-fiction and conflating the real with the imagined. The Hudson Valley has become known not only for its rich visual art but also for its strength in the literary arts. The region is steeped in its own narrative tales such as Washington Irving's "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," T.C. Boyle's novel World's End, and factual accounts of Henry Hudson's voyage.
This year's edition of the museum's annual juried exhibition of work by Hudson Valley artists will run from June 20 — November 8, 2015 in the Dorsky's Alice and Horace Chandler Gallery and North Gallery. The exhibition is being curated by Mary-Kay Lombino, an award-winning curator of contemporary art and The Emily Hargroves Fisher '57 and Richard B. Fisher Curator and Assistant Director for Strategic Planning of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College.
The deadline for artist submissions to The Stories We Tell is Monday, March 23, 2015, midnight. For more information, including application guidelines and online submission form, go to: https://dorskymuseum.submittable.com/submit/39262
