The Albany Institute of History & Art is pleased to present the 78th Exhibition by Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region. Established in 1936, this annual, juried exhibition pays tribute to the many talented artists working within a 100-mile radius of the Capital District and Glens Falls. As one of the longest-running regional art exhibitions in the country, it occupies a significant role in documenting contemporary art activity in the Upper Hudson Valley. This year's juror, Stephen Westfall, is an internationally-known painter, writer, and professor. He was born in Schenectady, New York and is currently an Associate Professor and Graduate Director at The Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, and Painting Co-Chair at The Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College. Artist selections and prize winners will be announced at the Opening Reception on Friday, September 26, from 5PM-8PM. A complete listing of pieces and prize winners will be available in an exhibition catalogue.

In the private space of the bedroom, the world takes center stage. There, on the elevated platform of the bed, matters of politics, international trade, social events, religion, and cultural affairs come alive in the elaborate designs and patterns displayed on American quilts, coverlets, and bed furnishings. Bed covers of all types are the perfect canvas for displaying ideas about the world beyond the bedroom door. They make connections to foreign lands and fabricate realms of fantasy and childhood whimsy. This exhibition investigates the designs and patterns that decorate American bedcovers of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. More than thirty bed covers and complementary objects reveal a variety of imagery used by American women and men to decorate their bed covers. Due to the light-sensitive nature of these textiles, these pieces are rarely on view and many have not been on public display for over thirty years. We are pleased to present them in this exhibition.
