Acclaimed Delmar photographer Joseph Schuyler died on Sunday (January 11) after a battle with cancer. He was 71 years old.
He exhibited his photographs throughout the Capital Region (Albany Institute of History & Art, the Schenectady Museum, Albany Center Gallery, Exposed Gallery of Photography, more) and beyond, from Brooklyn to Colorado. He was honored with two Kodak Golden Light Awards in portraiture and landscape, and his work was published in Rangefinder, American Photography, Zoom (International) and Photo District News, as well as countless other magazines, journals and books.
Review by David Brickman
The annual Exhibition by Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region, hosted this year by the Albany Institute of History & Art, raises the usual set of questions while presenting the usual confounding mash-up of regional art.
Popularly known as the Regional, this show has been running for nearly 80 years, making it one of the longest-standing exhibitions of its kind in the U.S. It’s always an annual high point for fans of the local art scene, and can be either a high point or a low point for participants, depending on their success in entering, personal taste, or overall degree of crankiness. This year’s edition was mounted on a later schedule than the usual summer appearance and will be up through Monday, January 19, affording a nice opportunity for the procrastinators among us to see it, even as 2015 has arrived.
Four opportunities for Nippertown filmmakers and videographers:
The Albany Institute of History & Art is hosting a new program called “An Evening of Films,” which will showcase film and video artists working in the greater Capital Region and the Hudson Valley. The program will allow filmmakers the opportunity to present and discuss their work with the public. Filmmakers are asked to submit short films – 20 minutes or less – and all submissions should be in a web-viewable format (YouTube, Vimeo or whatever delivery service you may prefer). Deadline for submission is Thursday, January 15. Selected films will be shown on the evenings of Thursdays February 19 & 26. The screenings are free and open to the public.
