Though Arts Letters & Numbers is still a young organization, our partnering organizations, such as the Art Center of the Capital Region have had a crucial role in the regional art scene for a long time. Their Fence Show, now in its 53rd year, is a member show, which originally was exhibited on the iron fence surrounding Washington Park in Troy, the original location of the Arts Center. These days the artwork is displayed salon style (floor-to-ceiling) in their galleries, and all levels of skill and ability are represented, from novice to professional.
Each year, a juror is invited to choose artwork for the Fence Select, an exhibition curated from the works in the fence salon. This year, the Fence Select exhibition was be juried by David Gersten. Together with Frida Foberg and Chris Rose they identified approximately 50 pieces that became the Fence Select, which were on display July - August, 2018.
