"This year's SDMA exhibition of work by emerging area artists surveys connections between culture and environment. Museum curator Brian Wallace selected 21 artists/artist teams from the mid-Hudson Valley and organized an exhibition featuring artwork, information, presentations, activities, and other projects connecting global issues such as sustainability, ecological awareness, and bioethics to our immediate surroundings.
New Paltz is an ecotone, a place where overlapping natural and social ecologies—the river and the mountains, the cosmopolitan and the rural—exist in a fragile tension. The artworks and art historical narratives associated with this region suggest the great opportunities (and responsibilities) that area artists, residents, and visitors have to visualize and act upon opportunities to contribute to a better world.
One component of the exhibition, Habitat for Artists, will offer temporary studio space in repurposed structures in several locations in New Paltz." Learn more on the SDMA site
