The inaugural Kingston Annual in 2020 was an impressive success. More than 180 artists living, working or making their art in Kingston and the mid-Hudson region submitted 325 artworks for consideration. Curator Julie Hedrick selected 25 artists—and guest artist Judy Pfaff, a pioneer of installation art—to exhibit their work. Three KA2020 prize winners received cash awards, and all selected artists exhibited their work throughout September 2020 at the ASK gallery and in a virtual gallery (archived for subsequent viewing). One of the first public art shows since the pandemic began, KA2020 showcased the power of art to inform, inspire, heal, and bring artists together within the broader communities of arts supporters and enthusiasts.
