"In Motion: Movement in Art" : Montclair, NJ

  • Montclair Public Library Gallery 50 South Fullerton Avenue Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States (map)

The reception will be Monday, June 6th at 7:15-8:45pm at the Montclair Library.

The reception includes a brief talk and exhibit walk-through by visual artist, arts educator, and arts consultant Mansa K. Mussa, whose photography is included in the exhibit.

Annette KushenRudy Martin, Cathleen McCoy BristolSybil Archibald, and Florence Weisz are among the 29 artists included in the show "In Motion : Movement in Art".

Curator Sarah Canfield says "all the pieces offer a record of moments within time. Through an imagined narrative, the slice in time is transcended and the artists invite us to reflect on what has or will occur."
From abstract mark making to the representation of a body in action, the exhibition depicts movement in a variety of styles and media. Viewers have the opportunity to explore the diverse ways that motion--the passage of time--can be portrayed through art and experience a sense of time, either swift or seeming to slowly float. Some works, Canfield notes, also invite viewers to discern emotional transformation depicted through the symbolism of the paintings and drawings on display.
