The Members’ Show: Teen Visions X Barrett Art Center (in person)

During its nearly century-long lifetime, the Barrett Art Center’s mission was to foster and perpetuate an appreciation of the visual arts in the Hudson Valley region through exhibitions, education and preservation. Barrett’s programming engaged and supported our diverse community. Through the merger and support of Barrett Art Center’s membership, The Art Effect’s youth curatorial training program has successfully hosted, curated and exhibited more than a dozen exhibitions as well as hosted the first PKX Arts Festival establishing the beginning of a Youth Arts Empowerment Zone in Poughkeepsie, NY.

The Members’ show, including Teen Visions will take place at the Trolley Barn Gallery from November 18 – December 9, 2022 with an opening reception on Friday, November 18, 2022 from 5-7pm.

Art Exhibit Reception & Artist Talk (in person)

On Friday Oct 7th, the Loeb will host a reception to celebrate the current exhibition On the Grid: Ways of Seeing in Print, followed by a talk by artist Aaron Turner, whose work is included in the show. Aaron will be visiting from Arkansas, where he teaches at the U of Arkansas and directs the Center for Art as Lived Experience and produces a podcast on photographers of color. Much of Aaron’s work as an artist and educator has been dedicated to bringing to light the legacies of artists of color and the personal histories of Black Americans from the Mississippi Delta region.

The schedule of events is as follows: Reception | 4:30 PM Loeb atrium & galleries Artist talk & conversation | 6 PM Taylor Hall, Room 102

PKX Festival (in person)

The annual PKX Festivals, in and around the Trolley Barn Gallery, serve as the building blocks for the development of a Youth Arts Empowerment Zone in the City of Poughkeepsie. Youth are responsible for every aspect of planning these events. They choose a featured artist, engage with city officials for festival permits, and organize communities throughout the city. The PKX Festival demonstrates place keeping by reactivating Middle Main with youth ideas and vision. Youth are bringing the community together as they work with professional artists and curators across the Hudson Valley for public art installation while empowering the City of Poughkeepsie.
