Just a bus ride away, the Albany Institute of History and Art is opening a brand new exhibition this Saturday, May 3. “Small and Seductive” gives you a peek at the best works of the most talented artists of the region — just make sure you’re standing close enough see!
A statement from the institute’s website reads: “Sometimes intimate, occasionally intricate, but always intriguing, small works of art invite us to step close and peer into their spatially bounded world. The Albany Institute’s new exhibition, “Small and Seductive,” is the third in a series to highlight its contemporary art collection. This exhibition features artwork of smaller proportions by the Upper Hudson Valley’s most ingenious and talented artists, paintings and sculpture that captivate within limited dimensions.”
Ongoing exhibitions include “The Mystery of the Albany Mummies” and “The Hudson River School and the 19th-Century Landscape.” The Albany Institute of History and Arts also has a tie-in education program.
