CLEMENT ART GALLERY
Last summer’s art exhibition at the Saratoga Arts Center, “Impasse & Motion: Ten Photographers’ Journeys through Instants in Music” (currated by Nippertown’s own chief photographer Andrzej Pilarczyk) was a near perfect melding of sound and vision.

Now the Clement Art Gallery in Troy is preparing to mount its own music photography exhibit. “The Great Rock N’ Roll Picture Show” features the eagle-eyed camera work of three fine Nippertown photographers – Martin Benjamin, Joe Putrock (who was also represented in “Impasse & Motion”) and John Whipple. The exhibition kicks off on Friday (January 27) with a reception from 6-9pm and runs through Wednesday, February 22.

Myth in Metaphor: The Etchings of Steven Hazard at Clement Art Gallery [Get Visual]

Steven Hazard etching

By David Brickman

I don’t know Steven Hazard personally, but his show at Clement Art Gallery in Troy says a lot about what sort of person he must be. Like many artists, he is obsessed – but unlike most people, artists included, he appears to be singularly devoted to his obsession, giving his entire existence over to creating a very particular world in carefully rendered and heavily layered imagery.

At his home studio in Albany, Hazard makes etchings, which he frames himself and takes on the road to sell at craft fairs and such; these travels have allowed Hazard to make a living, but have largely prevented him from pursuing traditional gallery shows. Myth in Metaphor is the first local show I can recall that features more than just a few of his works.

So this is a welcome opportunity to take in the scope of Hazard’s output – especially because, despite the small scale of the gallery, it’s a comprehensive collection that spans from the 1970s to the present. Then again, for me the show is perhaps too complete – Hazard’s images are so dense that it is a challenge to take in very many of them at once, and the result is that the experience is somewhat overwhelming.
