The Shirt Factory Gallery in Glens Falls was bursting at the seams during the opening reception of its inaugural Juried Show of Small Works on Friday, March 1.
Selected from more than 250 submissions by 110 artists juror Erin Coe, chief curator of the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, selected an eclectic mix of 55 contemporary art works, all smaller than 12 inches in any dimension.
Selected for the Best in Show winner was “Murmur” by Russell Serrianne.
“During the reception, we actually ran out of wine – not once, but twice!” says Shirt Factory co-manager Kate Austin-Avon. “Half an hour in, I looked around and thought it was a good turnout. The attendance about doubled in the next 15 minutes, and there wasn’t even room in the Gallery for everyone during the awards ceremony. It was an staggerlingly successful reception, and the show itself is truly groundbreaking for us. Erin Coe has assembled a bizarre, witty, intimate show.”
The exhibition is one view for one more weekend, from 11am-6pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 28, 29 & 30.
The Shirt Factory in Glens Falls is hosting a series of pop-up movie screenings on Friday evenings all summer long. An initiative of Art in the Public Eye, the films are projected on a large, inflatable movie screen on the lawn at the Shirt Factory.
This week’s film is the fabulous documentary (or is it?) “Exit Through the Gift Shop,” allegedly directed by guerilla artist Banksy, which examines the world of street artists and their intersection with the fine art world. It’s fascinating. It’s hilarious. And it might even be true. The film also earned an Academy Award nomination.
The movie begins at dusk. Bring lawn seating. Enjoy snacks and tea. And pick up a new Shirt Factory t-shirt, made by Matt Berkheimer.
