Our Goals

Your support will be strategically applied to support our goals, which include:

  • Developing an artist-in-residence program and supporting the Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency.

  • Improving functionality of our exhibition space to best display a wide range of artworks, for example: sealing the floor, building walls and pedestals and procuring other display material as needed.

  • Building educational programming that creates opportunities for emerging artists to expand dialogue around their work to all audiences.

  • Growing a fund to support exhibiting artists by providing resources to offset exhibition costs, such as framing and shipping and handling.

  • Bringing experimental and challenging curatorial concepts to Collar Works from outside the Capital Region to expand the regional vernacular.

  • Continuing to support the incredible range of artistic creativity within the region and beyond.

  • Creating functional artist studios and maintaining a wood shop for resident artists of Hudson Arthaus.
