The Artist Guild of Hoosick was formed to encourage and promote artists in the Hoosick area. We believe by offering enriching and engaging opportunities to our area we animate, engage and strengthening the life in the community.

PAST PROJECTS

hoosickbeings – The hoosickbeings project gave community members of all ages and talents the chance to create a totem-like structure that depicts the characters and spirit of the community.


Hoosick has Heart – This community art project featured 100 ceramic hearts hand-painted and decorated by community members, meant to emphasize the love and strength Hoosick-ians feel for the place they call home.


Bloom Launch – ​Welcome the colors and beauty of spring! Hoosick’s first-ever “Bloom Launch” featured fifty blue spheres on which local community artists painted colorful blooms of their own creation. Finished spheres were displayed in both The Perry Room of the HAYC3 Armory and throughout the Hoosick community.


Hoosick Wish Keepers – Hand-painted with scenes depicting or inspired by the Hoosick community, these one-of-a-kind boxes are perfect for holding your most precious treasures. Designed and painted by local artists, they make great gift and keepsakes. The first workshop will be Tuesday, November 1st at 6:00pm in the Art & Soul Room.

The Hoosick Barn Quilt Trail  is a community-wide celebration of art, music, and rural culture in Hoosick. Thirty-one barn quilts were painted by Hoosick community members, and then hung on barns and buildings throughout the town. The barn quilts celebrate our community and our heritage in the Town of Hoosick, Village of Hoosick Falls, and the surrounding hamlets. Download the map.
