The Center for Contemporary Art in Bedminster has announced the opening of two new exhibitions, on view January 17 through February 29. An opening reception, free and open to the public, is Friday, January 17 from 6 to 8 p.m.
“REPRESENTING: Artwork of the County College of Morris Fine Art Faculty,” features the work of Clayton Allen, Marco Cutrone, Todd Doney, Patrick Gallagher, Andrea Kelly, Deborah Kelly, Barbara Neibart, John Reinking, Robert Ricciotti, Marisol Ross, Eileen Sackman, Keith Smith, and Leah Tomaino. The work of these 13 faculty members “spans a variety of media and styles, it is linked by exceptional craft and creative competence” says curator Keith Smith, from the Visual Arts Program at the County College of Morris.
The other exhibit highlghts the works of “W. Carl Burger and James Kearns,” who have been making art for seven decades. “Each artist, within his own studio practice, has touched on a number of ideas that helped shape the second half of the 20th century,” say curator Wes Sherman. “Burger’s paintings and drawings explore ideas of abstraction, or more accurately, they deconstruct, examining the external elements that make up an environment. Kearns’ art, in contrast, explores the psyche, mostly through humor, and how it is revealed in the human figure.” more
