Robert Thiele: NADA x Foreland

August 28 - 29, 2021

Catskill, NY

Emerson Dorsch Gallery is thrilled to announce that Robert Thiele’s paintings and sculpture will be featured in the inaugural edition of NADA Foreland. Gallery founder Brook Dorsch says, “We are excited to exhibit Robert Thiele’s powerful work at NADA Foreland. It’s a great way for people new to his work to understand visually and spatially how his work resonates outside the white cube. NADA House at Governor’s Island was also a way to expand the possibilities of cooperation between galleries and let viewers experience art in unique settings.”


NADA’s press release follows:

The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is pleased to announce the participants in a first time collaborative exhibition with Foreland, an 85,000 square-foot arts campus in the Hudson River Valley. Taking place August 28–29, 2021, NADA x Foreland will feature artwork installed in historic industrial buildings in the center of Catskill, New York.

In partnership with Upstate Art Weekend and co-organized with NADA Member Jesse Greenberg of JAG Projects, the exhibition will highlight artworks from the community of NADA galleries, non-profits, and artists with a focus on artists and exhibition spaces working in the region of Upstate New York, featuring 81 exhibiting galleries, non-profits, and artist-run spaces presenting over 100 artists.

“NADA x Foreland presents a taste of the artists and galleries in the upstate artistic sprawl with a dialogue between Catskill and the international circuit. This is a celebration of a moment to recognize a strong extension of the international arts community; one informed from a long and rich history imbued with a new audience and new generation of producers,” said NADA x Foreland co-organizer Jesse Greenberg.

Highlights include presentations from Lydia Rubio (Art Into Acres, East Chatham), Sean Desiree (Baba Yaga, Hudson), Hudson-based artist Nicole Cherubini (September, Hudson), Schoharie County-based artist Hugo Montoya (Camp Eternal Hell Chamber, Mineral Springs). The exhibition will also feature presentations from international galleries including Proyectos Ultravioleta, Guatemala City; Will Aballe Art Projects (WAAP), Vancouver; Carbon12, Dubai; PEANA, Monterrey; KM 0.2, San Juan; and Stems, Brussels.

This is the first collaboration between NADA and Foreland, allowing participants to present works in a dynamic new setting and engage with the lively community of collectors, artists, and arts professionals based in the Hudson Valley during the bustling Upstate Art Weekend.
The exhibition will be free and open to the public Saturday, August 28 and August 29, 11am–8pm at 111 Water Street, Catskill, New York.

NADA x Foreland continues NADA’s engagement with the many audiences of the Upstate New York region, building on past events such as the NADA County Affair in Callicoon, NY (2010), NADA Hudson (2011, 2012), and our partnership with Upstate Art Weekend in 2020.
