The Riverside Galleries at the Garrison Art Center will present their first official emerging artist show, Culture Clash, which opens Saturday, July 25, with a reception from 3 to 5 p.m., and runs through the Riverside Craft Fair on Aug. 16. The show is curated by William Stafford and features three young artists working in New York City: Matt Van Asselt, Lulu Zhang and Dominique Palladino. The show runs concurrently with the Art Center’s Summer Art Institute, a three-week arts immersion program for high school students.

Van Asselt was a Summer Art Institute student, and through working here with previous Education Director Carlos Uribe, Van Asselt found his passion for silkscreen printing. Organizers say the 11 prints in the show will humble even the most established printmaking artists. Van Asselt will give a brief talk during the opening reception on Saturday, July 25, at 4 p.m.

The Riverside Galleries, located at 23 Garrison’s Landing in Garrison, is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information, visit or call 845-424-3960.
