It's a new school year, and we have 2 lovely new exhibits to open with!
We are featuring the work of Anne McCauley and Duane Monczewski. Both artists will be on campus on Thursday, August 26th to speak at 3:00pm, and we'll follow with a lively reception at the museum, including libations, appetizers and live music!
Anne McCauley's works are large-scale drawings and smaller prints of found objects. She includes a display of some of those finds in the show, which is especially intriguing!
"My current work, explores notions of yearning, searching, and discovering. With an accumulation of “evidence/debris” from my surroundings I expand my shape and texture vocabulary."
Duane Monczewski's work is color photographs taken all over the Southwest, and yes, that wall is REALLY that green!!
"His work is concerned with light on surface, and the manipulation of the photographic print. Working with a variety of film types, including infrared, he utilizes selective bleaching and toning and a variety of surface treatments..."
In the Lobby Gallery, we also feature some of Duane's black and white photographs from the museum's Permanent Collection.
Both exhibits are open now, until September 17th.
