2008 Exhibition by Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region June 21-August 10, 2008

The 72nd EXHIBITION BY ARTISTS OF THE MOHAWK-HUDSON REGION will be presented by the Albany Institute of History & Art from June 21 through August 10, 2008. Established in 1936, the MOHAWK-HUDSON REGIONAL is one of the longest running regional exhibitions in the country. This annual, juried exhibition occupies a major role in the history of contemporary art activity in the Upper Hudson Valley. The juror for the 2008 REGIONAL will be the internationally renowned American sculptor, Joel Shapiro. Highlighting the work of many of the artists working within a 100-mile radius of Albany, the exhibition rotates every three years among the Albany Institute, the University Art Museum at the University at Albany, and the Hyde Collection. The REGIONAL has become a barometer of contemporary art as well as a means of support for emerging and established artists in our community. Many local arts patrons and businesses provide cash prizes and gift certificates that the juror awards to selected artists. This recognition is essential to the growth and vitality of the arts in the Capital Region.
