Alyson Baker and Candice Madey curated Madness in Vegetables at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz

Alyson Baker and Candice Madey were invited to curate the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art’s annual summer Hudson Valley artists’ invitational exhibition. The title of the exhibition, Madness in Vegetables, cites the playful title of a poem by Francis Jammes, a French writer born in 1868 who is best known for his turn from the fashionable 19th c. Symbolist movement, instead drawing inspiration from the natural world and a rustic life far from the decadent center of Parisian literary circles.

RVAC presenting at 2nd Floor Salon Sessions: Art’s Place—The Local in Global

Hosted by Buro Koray Duman, this salon serves as a charrette for the newly established River Valley Arts Collective (RVAC) and a discussion about how scale impacts the relevance and efficacy of contemporary arts institutions in an age of mega museums, multinational galleries, and the worldwide proliferation of art fairs.    Through an evaluation of the proposed operating model for RVAC, participants will consider the relevance and sustainability of localized arts initiatives and their service to artists, contributions to the contemporary art dialogue, and influence on their communities.Presenters: Alyson Baker and Candice Madey, River Valley Arts Collective, Hudson Valley, NY
