Hyde to hold second in gallery talk series by Mohawk-Hudson artists
The Hyde Collection will host the second set of gallery talks by artists currently exhibiting works in the 2010 Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region juried exhibition at the Museum. The talks are designed to provide an avenue for exhibiting artists to discuss their work and interact via question and answer sessions with visitors.
From 5:30 – 6:30 pm on Thursday, December 16, 2010, presenting artists will be Gina Occhiogrosso of Troy, NY and Katie DeGroot of Fort Edward, NY.
Occhiogrosso will discuss her work, Homework (Phase 1), winner of the Maryann Bell Juror’s Award. She holds an MFA from SUNY Buffalo and her BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. In addition to national group exhibitions, she has had several one-person shows in the Capital Region.
DeGroot, whose exhibited work titled Hottie won the Marijo Dougherty and Norman Bauman Juror’s Award in memory of Nancy Hyatt Liddle, attended New York University and earned her BA at Illinois State University. She has been the recipient of three Yaddo residencies and participated in regional group exhibitions as well as gallery exhibitions in New York. She is currently the Director of the Summer Studio Art Program at Skidmore College.
