On view from January 29 through March 19, 2017 are the chosen artists of the Mattatuck Museum’s second annual Juried Members Exhibition, MIXMASTER. The First Prize Winner, who will receive a solo exhibition at the Museum, will be announced during the opening reception on Sunday afternoon, January 29 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The Second, Third and Jurors Selection Prize winners will also be named.
Created to encourage contemporary art through discovery and recognition of the talents of artists working in New England and the Tri-State region, this exhibition provides an opportunity for established and emerging artists to debut their latest work. The Mattatuck Museum looks forward to highlighting the work of our artist members.
The over 100 applicants were juried by Meg White, Director and Owner of Gallery NAGA in Boston. She has been part of the gallery and curating shows there since 1999. The gallery exhibits and represents contemporary painting, studio furniture, photography and holography. Its principal involvement with painting from Boston and New England is accompanied by a specialization in the work of the most prominent studio furniture-makers in the country.
White says regarding MIXMASTER: “Running an art gallery that is dedicated to the artists of the Boston region, I’m particularly interested in exploring work from a different, although quite connected, neighboring region. I expect to see lots of wonderful connections between the two.”
