|Michelle Segre "Colony Collapse" 2015|
Originally in Great Barrington, LABspace recently moved over the state line to Hillsdale. But the program of fresh and exciting contemporary art exhibits and events has not changed. Founded and directed by artist and musician Susan Jennings, the gallery has also hosted performance art, readings and experimental music. The current show, open through Aug. 8, pairs sculptures by Michelle Segre and paintings by Erica Svec. Segre is known for her quirky sculptures that incorporate traditional sculpture materials with children's toys, mushrooms, wire and tape. Svec's boldly gestural abstract paintings grew out of her fascination with the mind's ability to create new meanings for things through narrative associations. 2642 NY Route 23, Hillsdale, Columbia County. Hours: 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and by appointment. Free.labspaceart.blogspot.com."
