The MATT invites all to a reception marking the opening of MIXMASTER: Juried Members Exhibition from 1:00-3:00 p.m.  Celebrate member artists whose work is on view in the third iteration of this exhibition, and stay to hear the awards for first, second, third and Juror’s Selection prizes.

MIXMASTER is an exhibition that seeks to discover and recognize the talents of artists working in New England and the Tri-State region. Initiated to support and recognize contemporary art, MIXMASTER provides an opportunity for established and emerging artists to debut their most recent work. Works have been judged by Sara Shaoul, Director at 601Artspace in New York City, a gallery space that works to promote unconventional and interdisciplinary works.

First, second, third prizes and the Juror’s Selection Prize will be announced during the reception and voting will open for the Visitor’s Selection Prize, to be announced at the end of the exhibition. The winner will also have a solo show @ The MATT, opening later in 2018.

MIXMASTER will be on view through March 18, with several events taking place in conjunction with the exhibition. All are invited to a docent-guided tour of MIXMASTER on Sunday, February 25 from noon-1:00 p.m. The tour is free for Members and $7 for General Admission. Hear from the artists themselves during salon talks in the galleries on Sunday, March 4 at 2:00 p.m. and Tuesday, March 13 at 5:00 p.m. The salon talks are included with admission, which is free for Members and $10 for General Admission.
