Visit us at Collar Works in Troy NY this final weekend to see SpaceLAB, an exhibition of 3D work from 31 area artists, now extended through Sunday! Ellen & Julie will be there this Sunday October 18th, 12-4pm to say hi and give you a tour.

SpaceLAB is a labyrinth of unexpected sculptural work, activating the walls, ceiling, and floor of this magnificent space, as well as site-specific installations. On view are artists working in a wide range of materials— wood, fiber, ceramic, metal, cardboard, paper-mache, stone, plexiglass, found objects, and more.

We have been thrilled to showcase this immersive survey of surprising sculptural work that escapes easy categorization, being made in our own backyard. Collar Works is an exceptional resource for artists and art-lovers in the area, and all sales go 100% to the artists.

SpaceLAB is a family-friendly destination, and the wonderful team at Collar Works has ensured that visits are safe for all. Huge thanks to director Elizabeth Dubben and the whole crew.

Enormous appreciation to the artists for their work, time, and energies. This exhibition is a love letter to ALL the artists we’ve met since relocating to the Hudson Valley 4 years ago. Most of whom we’ve connected with via artist, curator, and founder of LABspace, Susan Jennings.

SpaceLAB artists: Adrian Meraz, Becca Van K, Brent Owens, Chris Victor, Christina Tenaglia, Claire Sherwood, Claudia Tienan, Dan Devine, Dina Bursztyn, Eleanor White, Elisa Soliven, George Spencer, Guy Walker, Henry Klimowicz, Hui Lee, Jennifer Johnson, Joan Grubin, Julie Chase, Kara Smith, Karlos C├írcamo, Katharine Umsted, Matt Crane, Millicent Young, Paula Lalala, Ruby Palmer, Seth Koen, Stuart Farmery, Susan Jennings, Susan Meyer, Susan Scott, Thomas Lail
