Paper Trail: A Visual Rhythm Effect

Paper Trail: A Visual Rhythm Effect
Paper Trail is a site specific paper installation envisioned and created by local artist Ali Herrmann. Inspired and created from papers once used in Crane & Company’s Stationery factory, the artwork examines and re-explores the use of paper. Resembling a continuous, longitudinal wave of measures, this 45’ long art piece emulates a visual representation of harmonious sound, repetition and rhythmic frequencies through color. Combining the beauty of paper history with the melodic energy of the space today, this installation explores the idea of the impermanence of things, the shifts and changes that have to be made for continued survival, and a positive transformation and recycling of materials from what once was to what is today.
 
*This project was made possible by a Martha Boschen Porter grant from the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation and the generous use of materials and space from the Stationery Factory.
 
**Parking and entrance located at the rear of the building, where you will be safely guided to walk through the exhibit space. Face masks required to enter the building/exhibit. Guests are asked to follow the guided path and maintain safe distance protocols with other attendees.

Fence Select 2019
The Fence Show got its name when members’ artwork was exhibited on the iron fence surrounding Washington Park in Troy, the original location of the Arts Center. This year we accepted over 400 pieces, including paintings, drawings, photography, fiber arts, stained glass, and sculpture. The artwork is displayed salon style (floor-to-ceiling) in our galleries, and all levels of skill and ability are represented, from novice to professional.

Albany Center Gallery Presents Interact: /ˌɪn·tərˈækt/, Six Artists’ Explorations of Human Relations
Albany, New York - From May 23 - June 22, 2019, Albany Center Gallery (ACG) will present Interact: /ˌɪn·tərˈækt/, featuring the works of regional artists Ali Herrmann, Danielle Klebes, Reinhardt Moore, Steve Rein, Lisa DeLoria Weinblatt, and Jeff Wigman. An artists’ reception will be held at ACG from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 7, 2019, and the public is invited to attend.

Humans are constantly engaging with nearby objects, surrounding environments, and other people. These connections are reflected in works of art, which draw in the additional dimension of viewers. They are strangers who walk into a new scene with the potential to relate to it. Interact: /ˌɪn·tərˈækt/ is therefore not merely the interactions between subjects within the frame, or from one piece to another, but also from work to beholder and in dialogues between one viewer and the next.
