The Hyde Collection recently made two announcements that caught our attention. Check them out!
Benedict J. Fernandez (American, b. 1936), DR. BENJAMIN SPOCK, DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, AND MONSIGNOR RICE OF PITTSBURGH MARCH IN THE SOLIDARITY DAY PARAGE THE UNITED NATIONAL BUILDING, April 15, 1967, Gelatin silver print, George Eastman Museum collections, Â© Benedict J. Fernandez.
New Exhibit Opening On January 24
This Sunday, 60 from the 60s: Selections from the George Eastman Museum will open in The Hyde Collection’s Charles R. Wood Gallery. It features 60 prints by 10 of the most significant photographers of the 1960s, including Harry Callahan, Benedict J. Fernandez, Hollis Frampton, Betty Hahn, Robert Heinecken, Mary Ellen Mark, Roger Mertin, Arnold Newman, Aaron Siskind, and Garry Winogrand.
“The works in this exhibition represent an extraordinary range of photographic images, from the surreal, to street portraits and architecture, to protest and documentary style photography,” said Erin Coe, Director of The Hyde, in a statement. “Together, these photographs capture a snapshot of a pivotal time in our nation’s history.”
Norman Rockwell in the 1960s is currently on display in the museum’s Hoopes Gallery, and the pair of exhibits offers visitors a chance to explore important social issues of the time, including the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam War protest, and women’s liberation.
60 from the 60s will run through April 3.
Call For Crockwell Paintings
The Hyde Collection is seeking assistance from the community with an upcoming exhibition of paintings by Glens Falls artist Douglass Crockwell. The exhibit, The Other Rockwell: Douglass Crockwell, will be on view from February 20 through May 8 in the museum’s Rotunda Gallery and is intended to coincide with Norman Rockwell in the 1960s.
The Hyde is looking for paintings by Crockwell, especially those created for The Saturday Evening Post, to include in the exhibition. If you have a painting that fits this criteria, you may bring it to the museum for consideration from Tuesday through Friday, January 26-29 and February 2-5 from 10am – 4pm. Paintings will also be accepted on Saturday, January 30 from noon – 4pm.
Lenders will be notified in early February if their painting was chosen, and all works will be available for return to the lender after May 17. Selected lenders will receive free admission to the museum for two and will have their name listed on the painting’s wall label.
