New Directions is a premier national exhibition of contemporary art in all media. The show is visited by art appreciators from the Hudson Valley and beyond, including New York City and the suburbs of Connecticut. Now in its 28th year, and juried by well-respected professionals from the country’s leading modern art museums, this exhibition brings together established, mid-career and promising emerging artists from across the country in an atypical venue: the warm and welcoming galleries of Barrett Art Center’s 1830s Greek Revival Townhouse, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Surprisingly, this space lends itself well to a dramatic, visually compelling presentation of contemporary and cutting-edge work.
Three cash prizes (amounts to be determined based on entries) and two honorary prizes are selected by the juror each year. Prizes are announced at the opening reception.
