Join Morris Arts and Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21 for a free opening reception for the Gallery at 14 Maple’s 16th exhibit, In Flux.
The exhibition features works by 11 outstanding artists and reflects the complexities and ever-shifting nature of our contemporary world.
A trained physical chemist, Sunil Garg’s sculptures literally glow with light, color and organic energy while the exquisite precision of Joe Freeman’s stark black and white photos of clearcut landscapes testify eloquently against the destruction of precious natural resources.
Bascove’s works pay homage to Art Deco and demonstrate her masterful collage techniques while Ed Fausty’s keen fisheye lens spotlights the beauties of often hidden, miniature natural worlds.
Asha Ganpat’s works blend mystery, depicting ephemeral smoke with her unique black and gold palette, and humor, with her Art Vending Machine (whose capsules contain an original work of art, available for $1).
By contrast, Danielle Masters’ art embodies millennial sensibilities, with energetic geometric shapes and bold, dramatic colors.
Nupur Nishith provides a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional Indian artistic themes, whose intricate details, specific cultural references and striking colors intrigue the eye and mind.
Ray Ogar’s vision is disturbing and nihilistic – featuring the “redacted” faces of zombie-like modern workers whose individuality and warmth has been brutally excised. A softer side of technology is seen in Pamela Shipley’s works, data-derived yet humanistic, with delicate colors and softly delineated forms.
K.C. Tidemand’s architectural, structural works reveal a world of extreme precision and order and Michael Wolf’s small sculptures explore multiple media (alabaster, gold leaf, metal and wood) and evoke a sense of home, history and open doors to the universe.
The public is invited to view this exciting exhibit and to meet the artists at the free opening reception on September 21, 2016 from 6-8 pm at Gallery at 14 Maple, a distinctive space located on the 3rd floor of the LEED certified “green” building at 14 Maple Avenue in Morristown. Refreshments will be served.
