Alana Sparrow Matulis, co-owner of the Foundry for Art, Design + Culture, announced her candidacy for the city’s Common council Second Ward seat Tuesday, sharing her vision of “fostering creativity and innovation for Cohoes.”
“The Foundry’s art and events gallery is a classic white space, with stone floors (and the building’s original bank vault) but the exhibits it hosts tend toward the cutting-edge of innovation, with a notable inclusion of illustration, print, and conceptual graphics. In addition to artist talks and showings, the Foundry also throws the most interesting cocktail parties in town.”
Alana Sparrow and Jesse Matulis are featured in Legendary Locals of Cohoes, a historical chronicle of individuals, organizations and businesses that have made significant contributions to the community.
In hopes of adding to the Spindle City’s rich history, The Foundry for Art Design + Culture officially opened its doors in style on Friday.
Co-founder Alana Sparrow was interviewed by Pillip Morris of Proctor’s Theatre as part of their Impact Show 301. She talks about The Foundry’s role in the Captial Region’s arts industry.
