Pocantico 2023 Fall Forum: The American Artists’ Hand Archive

Vanessa Hoheb and Thomas Donahue present a lecture on Portraits of Process: The American Artists’ Hand Archive currently on view in the DR Center gallery.

Hoheb, founder and director of the AAHA, and Donahue, AAHA artistic director, met at Pratt Institute in 1975 and have been collaborating on an exceptional body of work for over 45 years.

Their list of clients reads like a “who’s who” in American art: Willem de Kooning, Robert Indiana, Mary Frank, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Tiffany & Co., Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, the National Park Service restoration of the Statue of Liberty, the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York, in addition to private and public sculptural and architectural commissions.

Their shared history in the world of making art will be illustrated by a presentation with behind-the-scenes images of artists in their studios and works in progress. Vanessa will describe how this unique journey led to the development of the American Artists’ Hand Archive.

Following the presentation, guests will have the opportunity to handle and examine in detail a curated selection of some of the bronze life hand castings represented in the exhibition.

A Q&A will be followed by a reception with special access to the DR Center gallery, currently showing Portraits of Process: The American Artists’ Hand Archive.
