Hudson Guild Gallery at the John Lovejoy Elliott Center and Guild Gallery II at the Fulton Center offer several different ways for participants to explore the visual arts, especially those who might not otherwise have such opportunities.
Exhibits at our Galleries are of work by professionally trained artists that draw from both traditional styles of painting, drawing, sculpture and photography, to works using new media and styles that grapple with 21st Century issues. These are sometimes organized around themes which educate the viewers about an eclectic range of styles and forms, and some of these exhibits bring together work which explores cultural themes of special relevance to the people who participate regularly in other Guild programs.
The Guild often features exhibits which provide opportunities to anyone from the community to show their own art work in group shows, regardless of their level of experience or training,
Guided tours throughout the year serve to educate viewers of all ages about new forms and ideas, fostering an ongoing dialogue about the work on display and art in general. Hudson Guild Galleries provide many opportunities for participants to learn more about people with different life experiences from their own. These are opportunities which they might not otherwise have in their day-to-day interactions within the community. Tolerance and understanding increase as artists and viewers share ideas about art and life.
