exhibit

Colorama: From the George Eastman Museum, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls. For more than four decades, enormous advertisements displayed in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal affirmed a picturesque notion of everyday American life. The 18-foot-by-60-foot images depicted an idyllic nation: beautiful landscapes, holiday celebrations, world-changing historical events, family road trips and patriotism. This exhibition examines the captivating advertisements, offering insight into America, and the histories of advertising, photography and technology. Thirty-six reproduced images from the George Eastman Museum depict an idealized past for a new generation, and a welcome reintroduction for those who lived through the decades that helped shape photography. Organized by the George Eastman Museum. Exhibit runs through April 14.

From the Vault: Staff Selections, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls. Whitney-Renz and Hoopes galleries. With approximately 4,000 works in The Hyde’s permanent collection, it seems impossible to pick a favorite. But museum staff members — education, administration, security, operations, visitor services, finance and curatorial — have done just that. With selections that vary from prominent artists including Winslow Homer, Pablo Picasso and Elihu Vedder, and significantly more obscure artists such as Greg O’Halloran and the Master of Monte Oliveto, From the Vault provides a deeper look into The Hyde’s collection and insight into the people who do the behind-the-scenes work at the museum. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, closed Mondays, open from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Exhibit runs through March 31.

Women Modernists: Selections from the Permanent Collection and Nova Southeastern University Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren Street, Glens Falls. Women Modernists: Selections from the Permanent Collection and Nova Southeastern University Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale Feibes & Schmitt Gallery through June. Women Modernists examines how Modernism breaks from traditions of the past to embrace abstraction and experimentation. Through willingness and flexibility to move between figuration and abstraction, artists such as Dorothy Dehner and Grace Hartigan communicate new ways of seeing and understanding the world around us. With influences as diverse as nature, the constructivist movement, and jazz, come see how women of the 20th century looked to the future.
