Hyde Collection Announces Upcoming Exhibits
“We have a remarkable schedule of exhibitions lined up for next year,” states director of The Hyde Collection, Erin Coe. “From contemporary work by Christo and Jeanne-Claude to an exhibition on Norman Rockwell’s illustrations in the 1960s to master prints by Dürer and Rembrandt, we’re excited to bring a dynamic schedule of extraordinary art to Glens Falls and the greater community.” Four major exhibitions open with ‘Norman Rockwell in the 1960s’ on January 16. In 1963, after ending his 47-year association with The Saturday Evening Post, Norman Rockwell began work for LOOK magazine with a true sense of purpose and invited consideration of important social issues. The 21 works in this exhibit trace the artist’s transformation from a painter of people and life’s small but extraordinary moments, to a powerful visual commentator on core national values such as democracy, freedom, justice, desegregation and civil rights. In ‘60 from the 60s: Selections from the George Eastman Museum,’ on January 24, the work of ten of the most significant photographers of this decade including Harry Callahan, Benedict Fernandez, Hollis Frampton, Betty Hahn, Robert Heinecken, Mary Ellen Mark, Roger Mertin, Arnold Newman, Aaron Siskind and Garry Winogrand explores the generational change and conflict of the 1960s in this selection of 60 photographs from the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, N.Y.
The Hyde Collection is a distinguished collection of of nearly 4,000 pieces of European and American art spanning centuries, changing exhibitions and more in a modern museum complex and historic house at 161 Warren Street, Glens Falls, N.Y.
