David Hinchen Gallery opens on State Street in Albany

Located in a historic State Street mansion, the new gallery features architectural paintings and photographs by David Hinchen of Albany and beyond. Hinchen has said, “For me, buildings are the significant carriers of cultural memory. The enduring physical makeup of a city directly influences its culture as well as its ability to survive as a place people care about.”

The exhibit will also feature mixed-media collages by Gail Hinchen and lamps made from architectural salvage by Tim Dumas.

And as a special treat, attendees will get a rare peek into the studio of Maxime Taccardi. Newly arrived from Paris, France to Albany Taccardi has said of his work, “Art is a way to stand, to protest against the absurdities and injustice of this world. For my paintings and drawings, I use acrylic, pencils, and also my own blood. I do also short films and music under the name of K.F.R., which is my translation into music of my paintings. Dark, cold, and violent.”
