BUILT 2019 Art Show
Historic Albany Foundation’s annual fall fundraiser, BUILT, promotes awareness of our community’s built environment and raises funds for preservation efforts.
BUILT: Albany’s Architecture Through Artist’s Eyes will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at the NYS Museum. We are proud to demonstrate our mission through this celebrated and popular Art Show and silent auction of regional artist’s work, bringing together many art mediums from some of the region’s best known artists.
This year’s event committee (chaired by HAF board member and regional artist David Hinchen) is hard at work to create an event that will showcase more than 175 pieces of original artwork by over 90 regional artists, created with a wide range of materials, all linked by the theme of the region’s “Built Environment.”
Serving as jurors and judges are Tony Ladicicco, Executive Director of Albany Center Gallery; local artist Gail Hinchen, who has been a submitting artist to BUILT for many years; and Judie Gilmore, Director of the Opalka Gallery at Sage Colleges. Tony, Gail and Judie will bring their experience, expertise and talent to selecting the best pieces of art for this annual auction.
