ArtBeat: The Shirt Factory Gallery’s Juried Show of Small Works
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.
