ArtBeat: Mohawk Hudson Regional Invitational @ Albany Center Gallery [Get Visual]
By David Brickman
One of the best shows each year at Albany Center Gallery is the annual invitational drawn from the Mohawk Hudson Regional. It’s a cool idea we don’t see often enough: Gallery representatives visit the big juried show and make notes on whose work they’d like to see more of, then ACG organizes an exhibition of those select picks.
This year’s MHRI at ACG includes four very diverse artists in terms of medium, style – even age – and that’s a good thing. As I am one of the gallery’s board members and the chair of the exhibits committee, I was involved in the selection process – so this won’t be a review. Instead, I will simply recommend the show and suggest you include it in your 1st Friday plans on May 6, when the artists’ reception will be held from 5 pm to 8 pm.
