Aljira is happy to host Studio Montclair’s 17th Annual Juried Exhibition, Viewpoints 2014, with a reception on Saturday, June 7 from 6 to 9pm. The exhibition features works of 100 artists from New Jersey and 16 other states in a wide array of media from oil on canvas and photography to glass, iron, digital photos, collage, concrete, found objects, yarn and fabric. There are constructions and deconstructions, intensely personal works, and those that make environmental statements.
Referring to a description of the current art world as a “massive tapestry interwoven with the threads of many artists,” juror Sue Scott, independent curator, writer, art consultant and founder of Sue Scott Gallery, says this exhibition “offers the opportunity to understand just how pulsating, alive, and varied this tapestry is.”
The exhibition will be on view at Aljira’s 591 Broad Street, Newark galleries through June 28, 2014.
