Opening Reception & 70th Anniversary Celebration
January 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
All are invited to join us for a 70th-anniversary celebration! We have a number of exciting things planned, including a special art project in our studios, birthday cupcakes, a HAM-themed cocktail, and live music by David Segarnick. A short ribbon-cutting ceremony and town proclamation will commence at 2pm to honor Hunterdon Art Museum’s historic and vital role in the community.
This celebration will be in conjunction with an opening reception for our new exhibitions. Browse the work in our galleries, mingle with friends and fellow art lovers, and hear from exhibiting artists and guest curator Mary Birmingham.
PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST
Explore the ways in which artists interpret themselves and the world around them through portraiture. Each of the works in this exhibition features an artist as the subject, using both literal representations as well as more nuanced interpretations.
CRISTINA DE GENNARO: SAGE DRAWINGS
Five works from Cristina de Gennaro’s series of landscape drawings of the high desert floor that began during a fellowship at the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, N.M.. The drawings depict eroding sagebrush, weeds, and parched soil and examine the tension between the sublime and the abject.
TRICIA ZIMIC: SINS & VIRTUES
White porcelain sculptures of Chacma baboons depicting the Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Virtues. The sculptures, part of Zimic’s “Sins & Virtues” series, are one-of-a-kind and hand-modeled, with the individual personality of each animal and artwork revealed through the development of fine details.
*Free and open to the public.
