Radius 50
July 30 – September 12, 2021

Opening Reception: Saturday, July 31 | 4-6pm


Radius 50 is an exhibition of works by artists living and working within 50 miles of Woodstock. Of the 172 submissions for this exhibition, jurors Alyson Baker and Candice Madey of River Valley Arts Collective chose works by 13 artists who are responding to and reflecting on diverse aspects of the rural environments in which they live. The artists bring to bear the influence of their immediate landscape in both materiality and subject matter with local geography, histories, traditions, and natural resources forming the context for a broader dialogue about the relationship between artist and place.

Alyson Baker
Before establishing River Valley Arts Collective in 2018, Alyson Baker was the executive director of The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. There, she significantly advanced both the Museum’s mission and its overall operational capacity while overseeing its acclaimed exhibition and education programs. Prior to her position at The Aldrich, she served for over eleven years as Executive Director of Socrates Sculpture Park. Baker has authored and edited numerous publications on contemporary artists, public art and artist workspaces; lectured on subjects such as arts-based community development, non-profit management, and curatorial practice; and has served on juries, panels and committees for universities, cultural institutions, arts programs and councils across the country.

Candice Madey
Before joining River Valley Arts Collective, Candice Madey founded the pioneering Lower East Side gallery On Stellar Rays in 2008 and for nine years directed a program that garnered international recognition for a dynamic roster of artists. Frequent collaborations with colleagues in other disciplines placed her exhibitions in a unique dialogue with craft, music, poetry, and literature. In 2018, she founded Stellar Projects, an art consulting and curatorial platform that advises private collections and foundations.
