Young People’s Radius 50

September 7 – 29, 2019

Reception: Saturday, September 14, 4-6 PM

FOUNDERS GALLERY

EXHIBITING ARTISTS: Jessica Judith Beckwith, Sanford Fels, Abbey Fisher, Joel Olzak and Taylor Gephard.

For a second year Art for Education at WAAM invites SUNY New Paltz BFA students to participate in Young People’s Radius 50 which will be on display during the 3rd annual Radius 50, a survey exhibition highlighting work by some of the very best artists living and working in the Mid-Hudson/Catskills region.

Young People’s Radius 50 connects burgeoning artists with the region’s active artist community, fosters collaboration, and provides hand-on on experience planning and installing an exhibition. The show will feature the work of five SUNY New Paltz BFA students in WAAM’s Founders gallery, as well as an outdoor exhibition of sculpture on the WAAM terrace.
