Art At APL


Through November 5, 2022 | Pine Hills Branch

Art professors often have dual roles: making art and turning students into artists. In conjunction with the Screenprint Biennial exhibition, opening at Opalka Gallery in September, we invited regional printmaking professors to exhibit and to, in turn, invite a current or former student to exhibit alongside them. Lasting Impression reveals both the range of printwork being made in our region and the lasting impressions students and faculty make on each other.

“Lasting Impression” artists are: Jesse Alsdorf, Allison Conley, Leona Christie, Thorsten Dennerline, Andrew S. Evans, Jr., Charlotte Fairless, Beka Goedde, Lindsey Guile, Jon Greene, Hedya Klein, Alexandra Lake, Kate Leavitt, Branden Law, Nathan Meltz, Catherine McTague, Farhad Mirza, Madeline Montero, Rhea Nowak, Tatiana Potts, Sydney Samele, Rebekah Tolley & Aaron Major, and Immanuel Williams.

VIEW THE EXHIBIT | The exhibit can be viewed by the general public during Pine Hills Branch open hours  from Saturday, June 4, through Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022.

Art at APL, which is curated by Opalka Gallery, is a fine arts exhibition program at the Pine Hills Branch showcasing the work of contemporary artists connected to the Capital Region. The program, which began in 2013, integrates professional artwork into public spaces within the library, enriches the library experience, and gives visitors something interesting and educational to look at while they browse the collections.  Art at APL is funded in part by the Friends & Foundation of Albany Public Library.



In addition to the Art at APL exhibitions, the library occasionally displays art, photographs, and other pieces created by students and other members of the community. If anyone objects to art on display in the branches, the Exhibited Art Reconsideration Request should be filled out and submitted.
