A Revealing look at the Hyde

This Sunday, June 7 The Hyde Collection opens its much anticipated exhibition A Glens Falls Legacy: The Pruyn Family, curated by Erin B. Coe. In conjunction with the Glens Falls Centennial The Hyde is proud to showcase the philanthropic efforts that this influential family had on the city of Glens Falls through two exhibitions entitled A Shared Life: Selections from the Pruyn Family Collection and A Landscape Revealed: Photographs of the Pruyn Sisters Gardens. From never-before-exhibited historic photographs that give us a glimpse into the extensive landscape gardens which once adjoined the three Pruyn sisters homes and their shared seven-acre estate to their passion for art, architecture, international travel, and music, we can see how this close-knit family lived, their cultural pursuits and their contributions to the city of Glens Falls.

The exhibition is featured in the Charles R. Wood Gallery at The Hyde Collection from June 8 to August 24.
