Made to Capture

To a photographer, inspiration can appear in many ways: The smile on a child’s face, the dew drop on a flower, the angles and whorls in a building’s façade.

Or it can be something — an image, an idea, a tableau — locked in the mind, where it stays until the photographer brings it to life.

That is what Made to Capture, the newest exhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum, conveys.

Meanings of Home

Tucked away, inside a rather nondescript building in Lawrenceville, some truly beautiful and empowering art is being created.

Small groups of adults comb through fabrics, searching for just the right swatch to capture their feelings. Others are hunched over whirring sewing machines, stitching together pillows or wall hangings. This mix of homeless women and volunteers are exploring what home means to them on a very […]

Member Highlight Exhibition: Arturo Cabrera

About two years ago, Arturo Cabrera was a familiar face at the Hunterdon Art Museum as a summer camp coordinator overseeing volunteers and managing supplies.

But when Cabrera returns to the Museum on Sunday, Nov. 15, his visit will be for an entirely different purpose. Cabrera was chosen last year from the Museum’s Members Exhibition for a solo show, which will run until Jan. 3, […]

Peter Jacobs: The Collage Journal — The First Decade

,

This morning, Peter Jacobs rolled out of bed, poured himself a cup of coffee and reached into his leather shoulder bag for an X-Acto knife, some glue, a 9-x-12 inch self-healing matt and a 12-page Strathmore watercolor pad. He retrieved his copy of The New York Times from his front porch, and sat down at his kitchen table where he spent the next two […]

Sally Spofford (1929-2014): Late Work

A new exhibition of the recent work of Sally Spofford not only honors a talented artist, but recognizes the efforts of a significant member of the Hunterdon Art Museum’s community.

“She was amazing, smart, witty and fearless,” said Ingrid Renard, who has curated and installed numerous shows at the Museum after being recruited by Spofford years ago.

Spofford passed away in July 2014. The Museum, which […]

Through the Lens

Microscopes? Telescopes?

You don’t typically expect to find either in an art exhibition, but both are main components in Through the Lens, the newest show at the Hunterdon Art Museum. The exhibition invites visitors to explore the artistic possibilities in the infinite and the infinitesimal.

Through the Lens opens Sunday, Sept. 27 with a reception from 2 to 4 p.m. that everyone is welcome to attend. […]

walking shadow: recent work by jury smith

Ceramic artist Jury Smith’s new exhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum is a calling to home, of sorts.

“Some of the forms and patterns are rooted in personal references — old white churches in long hollows, chopped bits of wood, echoes of the past, moments of clarity and moments of beautiful darkness,” Smith said.

The exhibition, walking shadow: recent work by jury smith, opens on Sunday […]
