Contemporary International Tapestry

Tapestries might conjure up images of medieval castles, unicorns and other mythical beasts, but a new exhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum weaves a fascinating picture of how the art form has evolved in the past 70 years.

Contemporary International Tapestry highlights the work of three generations of artists from nine countries who are elevating tapestry to a whole new level of technical and aesthetic […]

Diana González Gandolfi: Navigated Territories

As the daughter of an architect working for the United Nations, artist Diana González Gandolfi  grew up in many different countries and in many different homes. She learned early in life how to make home wherever she happened to be.

This life experience of being uprooted and moving among various cultures shapes the overriding theme of González Gandolfi’s solo exhibition, Navigated Territories.

“The experience of geographic […]

Discomfort: Experiments in Furniture, Function and Form

When is a table not a table, or a bed not a bed?

Discomfort: Experiments in Furniture, Function and Form features objects that resemble furniture, but do not function as such. Instead, these sculptures blur the line between utility and uselessness and encourage viewers to look at common household objects in an entirely new light.

“When we own objects purely for their utility, there is a […]

Interconnections: The Language of Basketry

You’d expect to find bamboo, cane or bark used as materials in an art exhibition on basketry – but hair curlers? Plastic zip ties?

The works created by the twenty-two artists highlighted in the Hunterdon Art Museum’s newest exhibition, Interconnections: The Language of Basketry, include everything from stapled paper to fabricated metal. Some employ found objects, others utilize clay, linen, or wire. Works range from […]

Andrew Hayes: Paper and Steel

 

Andrew Hayes may not judge a book by its cover, but he does judge it by the edges of its pages.

The artist prowls old book stores and antique shops searching for the perfect volumes for his work: Creating sculptures by marrying the rigid qualities of steel to the delicacy of book pages. Hayes gravitates toward older books with gold leaf or red on their […]

Kreh Mellick: All the Woodsy Things

Artist Kreh Mellick’s work is influenced by a variety of sources from her family’s passion for collecting antiques to her great-grandmother’s sketch books and by Pennsylvania Dutch folklore.  But perhaps nothing is more surprising than the inspiration she felt after picking up an old book of machine drawings.

The diagrams of the machines were in black and red ink. The black represented the non-moving machine […]

To The Best of My Recollection

“To the best of my recollection” might sound like a phrase drawn from the Watergate Hearings or a television courtroom drama, but it also suggests the fallibility of memory. A new exhibition of drawings at the Hunterdon Art Museum explores how we retell stories, and how information is lost or distorted when we consider the people and places in our lives.

“To the Best of […]

Lisa Macchi: New Works on Paper

Artist Lisa Macchi says the experience of painting is a living, breathing process that’s intuitive, improvisational, visceral and seductive.

“It’s a physical dance with the piece for me,” Macchi said. “My process is not to think too much and let the work take its own course.”

Macchi’s solo exhibition, New Works on Paper, opens at the Hunterdon Art Museum on Sunday, May 17 and runs until […]
