Artist Founders of the Hunterdon Art Museum

, ,

Explore the works of three artists and innovators—Anne and James Marsh, and Katherine Trubek—who were driving forces in converting a stone mill on the banks of the south branch of the Raritan River into what would become a center for contemporary art, craft and design.

Darren McManus: Tangents

, ,

Darren McManus’s work in Tangents spans a decade in the making and represents a paradox of sorts. In his paintings, color is used to create harmony and extreme contrast: Hard-edged forms share the same space as blurry, amorphous masses; and, natural imagery such as flowers and plant life coexist with technological or mechanized motifs. The surfaces of his paintings are super flat, but possess […]

Giovanna Cecchetti: The Consciousness of Infinite Goodness

Giovanna Cecchetti’s journey to The Consciousness of Infinite Goodness began under the broadleaf canopy of the Amazon jungle.  She first traveled there in 2008, living in hammocks, discovering the rainforest with a medicine man, and drinking plants that made her feel connected to the ancient ways of those around her.

What she saw truly amazed and inspired her: the sounds, spirits, animals, insects and plants […]

Sky Pape: Traces of Places

, ,

For Sky Pape, whose abstractions explore nature through unconventional uses of traditional drawing materials, water serves as a creative material and a muse. She works with handmade kozo paper and created the works in this exhibition with black Sumi ink and water in its various forms: Mist, ice, rain and snow — each of which makes a different kind of mark when combined with […]

Swept Away: Translucence, Transparence, Transcendence in Contemporary Encaustic

The exhibition includes paintings, prints, collage and sculptural works that show how artists are taking this ancient process in new directions.

This exhibition offers an extraordinary range of expression and allows viewers to discover how luminosity plays a vital role for […]

Warren Muller: Luminary

,

For more than 30 years Warren Muller has literally seen the light in the most mundane and ordinary objects imaginable. Muller uses luminescence as his guide, suspending bottles, perfume containers, old hay baling equipment, hubcaps, bowling pins, toy cars, deer antlers, porcelain figurines, candy dishes, metal lunch boxes, bikes, traffic light lenses, and even a retro mini cooper car to create sublime sculptures of light.

Muller’s work […]
