The Hyde Collection: John Van Alstine and José Guadalupe Posada exhibitions on display through Sept. 18

 

GLENS FALLS, NY – The Hyde Collection presents two new summer exhibitions, sharing the works of two outstanding artists. Opening Saturday, June 11, 2022, are the exhibitions: Transformations: The Art of John Van Alstine and José Guadalupe Posada: Legendary Printmaker of Mexico. The exhibitions are open to the public from June 11–September 18, 2022, Thursday through Sunday from 10 am–5 pm.

“The art of José Guadalupe Posada and John Van Alstine are quintessential of their time and particular corner of this great American continent,” remarked Jonathan Canning, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Programming. “Steeped in both the indigenous and European traditions of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Mexico, Posada harnessed the power of modern printing to
promote his art and engage the people. Van Alstine, an Adirondack native, is well-versed in the Classical and Eastern philosophies that underpin modern America, its “can-do” spirit, and the country’s great industrial legacy and awesome natural resources. I can think of no other continent on which either artist could thrive than ours.”
