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.”
The Hyde Collection is excited to announce its 31st Annual High School Juried Art Show showcasing the artistic talent of young artists from Warren, Washington, Saratoga, Hamilton, and Essex counties. This year’s high school artists employ diverse media, including drawing, painting, digital illustration, photography, jewelry, sculpture, and ceramics. The Hyde Collection is honored to
support promising young artists and students in the capital region.
“The High School Juried Art Show is an amazing opportunity for area high school student artists to learn and experience the finer points of a professional competitive exhibition process. As one of the nation’s longest-running high school juried shows, we are proud to continue providing this opportunity for our region’s amazing young artists,” said The Hyde Collection’s Director of Curatorial Affairs, Jonathan Canning.
In an extensive jurying process, judges selected 100 pieces of artwork for the exhibition from 443 submissions from 182 students in 13 schools. The entries were judged by a panel of jurors featuring three professional artists from our region: Anne Diggory, Doretta Miller, and Victoria van der Lann, each of whom has a work in The Hyde’s permanent collection.
Winners were announced May 7 at the opening reception, attended by 170 people in The Helen Froehlich Auditorium. Awards were given to the artwork in categories of Best of Show, Curator’s Award, Juror’s Awards, and Honorable Mentions. The Visitor’s Choice Award will be awarded at the conclusion of the exhibition. All winners received a $250 scholarship for an art class at SUNY Adirondack and every student artist received a prize pack.
