I'm a member of the Artists' Collective of Hyde Park, an enthusiastic group of volunteer artists dedicated to promoting art in our fair town of Hyde Park, NY. A new organization begun in summer 2012, we have grown quickly to 27 members. We've gotten permission from a local real estate owner and arts supporter to fix up a vacant house to use as a pop-up gallery. I am amazed that we were able to do so in only three short weeks, working together with passion for our common goal - painting, spackling, scraping, cleaning and a hundred other minor tasks. We're fortunate to have a variety of skills represented in our group, from publicity to construction to gallery administration, which have combined to bring us to the eve of our first opening with joyful anticipation.
The opening reception is on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 4340 Albany Post Rd, Hyde Park, NY. Our art includes painting, sculpture, photography, mosaics, stained glass and more. Each of us has 3 pieces on display in the gallery and some have matted prints as well. Our first show is open until October 21, 2012. Gallery hours after the opening reception Saturday will be 11 am -7 pm, Thursday - Sunday.
