Intimate Lines: Drawing with Thread

,

In Intimate Lines: Drawing with Thread, 16 artists wield a needle like a pen to compose intensely personal stories and record intimate histories.

The Art of Construction

Concrete, drywall, PVC pipes, wire, milk crates.

You’d fully expect to see these and similar materials at a construction site but not in an art museum. But the Hunterdon Art Museum’s latest exhibition The Art of Construction encourages viewers to see how common building materials can be bent, twisted and shaped to create intriguing works of art.

Lovina Purple is curating this show. The foundation for […]

Richard Wengenroth: Water to Paper

What better place for an art exhibition about water than at a Museum on the banks of a river?

Wes Sherman: Variations on a Theme

For the past year, Wes Sherman has been painting the same landscape.

The landscape has a horizon line high on the picture’s plane, a dark plant with several branches shooting upwards in the foreground and a red leafy plant to the right. Through his work, Sherman is attempting to determine how many different ways he can show this same landscape, but change the way he […]
