The two-story, 2000-square-foot Teaching Gallery presents work in all media by professional artists and is open to the public as well as the campus community.

What We Looked At

Oct. 22 - Dec 2, 2021

“What We Looked At,” an exhibition of work from the collections of Fine Art and Digital Media faculty members, includes artwork created by Scott Brodie, Dawn Clements, Barbara Ess, Nan Goldin, Susan Hartung, GC Haymes, Chelly Hegan, Naomi Lewis, Robert Longo, Laura Mandelson, Robert Motherwell, Lee Ranaldo and others.

“As we again venture out to visit spaces and view collections of art works, this show brings those private moments of isolated viewing back to the social realm by gathering and sharing works from the faculty’s collections here in the now-open Teaching Gallery. It is a view into those months where what was on our walls was our solace, inspiration, comfort and context. What was on our walls was what we looked at,” Fine Arts Professor Thomas Lail writes in an introductory statement to this post-lockdown exhibit.

Garden: A site specific installation by Thomas Lail

Ongoing in the Administration Building Atrium

Garden, Professor Thomas Lail’s oversized rendering of a William Morris wallpaper pattern, scales the trellis of the Administration Building’s glass atrium, reflecting on the history of glassed-in winter gardens, cultivated nature, and the dream of Utopian architectures of transparency. The installation project is supported by the Hudson Valley Community College Foundation’s Stephen L. Hyatt Fine Arts Fund and installed with assistance from the college’s Graphics Department and Physical Plant, and NoName Graphics, Troy.
