imageWild Nature: Masterworks from the Adirondack museum

January 18 - April 12, 2015, Wood Gallery

Sixty-two stunning masterworks reveals how images of the Adirondack landscape shaped America's perception of the wilderness and how, in turn, created wilderness as a national icon. Works include paintings, rarely exhibited photographs, and prints dating from the 19th to the early 21st century. Viewers local to the Adirondack region will see many familiar places such as Ausable Chasm, Lake George, and Schroon Lake, in their past wild form.

The Charles R. Wood Exhibition Fund



March 21 - May 31, 2015
Hoopes Gallery

This exhibition presents the works of twelve artists.  The photographic prints in the exhibition are a sampling of over 120 works recently donated to The Hyde Collection by television journalist George Stephanopoulos and his family. Some of these photographers consider themselves artists; others, photo-journalists. Still others call themselves working photographers. There are those who consider themselves chemical engineers who take pictures to test their inventions of photographic materials. Make no mistake, however, the photographers in this exhibition are all artists of the highest order, recognized by curators, dealers, collectors, art historians, and their peers worldwide. Their work represents a wide range of artistic expression and subject matter, from political celebrities to working people, from everyday studio portraits to the dark side of street life, from landscapes to cityscapes, and from botanicals to sunsets -- each image a masterwork of observation, vision, and artful control of this complex and intriguing medium.
