• Saratoga Arts is celebrating its 30th anniversary with an invitational show of works by 30 artists who have shown in the gallery since it opened its doors. Tom Schottman, Laura Von Rosk, Beverley Mastrianni and Victoria Palermo are on the list. The exhibit runs through Oct. 29.

• On Saturday, the Arts Center of the Capital Region opens “Inside Breathing Lights,” a behind-the-scenes look at the public art project that will illuminate vacant homes in Albany, Schenectady and Troy.

• “The Art of Seating: Two Hundred Years of American Design” is the big show at the Albany Institute of History & Art. The gathering of chairs, each remarkable for its beauty, history or cultural influence, will be on view from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31. The designers include Frank Lloyd Wright, Isamu Noguchi and Frank Gehry.

• On Oct. 7, the Esther Massry Gallery at The College of Saint Rose unveils “Lisa Hoke: Common Side Effects,” an exhibit of quirky sculptures, murals and collages made from reclaimed trash. The exhibit will be co-curated by Jeanne Flanagan, gallery director, and artist Judy Pfaff.

• The Hyde Collection is this year’s host for the Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Region, which opens on Oct. 30. Artist Michael Oatman is the juror.

• American fabric sculptor, dancer and performance artist Nick Cave opens his super-sized installation “Until” on Oct. 15 in MASS MoCA’s Building No. 5. The title is a play on the phrase “innocent until proven guilty,” and will be Cave’s commentary on gun violence, gun control policy, race relations and gender politics.

• The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound and others show up on Nov. 12, when the Norman Rockwell Museum unwraps “Hanna-Barbera: The Architects of Saturday Morning,” an exhibit about the legendary cartoon animators.
