New Exhibitions at Montclair Art Museum
Three new exhibitions open at Montclair Art Museum on February 8. "Federico Uribe: Animalia," "Uncaged: Animals in the Collection," and "Personal Landscapes" feature works in mixed media, painting, sculptures, prints, and more.
"Federico Uribe: Animalia" includes more than 60 pieces on exhibition from visionary artist Federico Uribe. Uribe creates haunting mixed-media paintings and sculptures, fashioned from a layering of mundane objects including colored pencils, shoes and shoelaces, plastic waste and recycled bullet shells, and reflecting the artist’s alchemical, intuitive and imaginative process. His colorful, larger-than-life works will inspire Montclair Art Museum guests. Runs from February 8, 2020 through June 21, 2020.
"Uncaged: Animals in the Collection" draws from Montclair Art Museum’s American and Native American collections. The exhibition will explore the variety of ways artists engage with animal imagery in their work. The exhibition will coincide with "Federico Uribe: Animalia" and bring the galleries roaring to life. Runs February 8, 2020 through August 8, 2021.
"Personal Landscapes" celebrates the local artist community that has inspired the Montclair Art Museum since its founding over 100 years ago. The exhibition features recent work by artists from Essex County. The rich diversity of media and quality of work represented is a testament to the talent and creativity of our local artists. Featured artists include Christine Elvin and Katrina Bello. Runs from February 8, 2020 through June 21, 2020.
