SUMMER EXHIBITIONS at The Galleries at Moore

Here & There: Alumni Invitational

June 5 – July 17, 2021

Here & There highlights the work of six alumni whose artistic practices explore themes of “place.” Through painting, photography, sculpture, and community engagement, the exhibition presents a variety of ways to understand how artists question, embrace, and interact with their surroundings. Featuring projects by Anne Canfield ’99 (BFA), Robin Dintiman ’72 (BFA), Naomieh Jovin ’17 (BFA), Michelle Angela Ortiz ’00 (BFA), Laura Petrovich-Cheney ’11 (MFA), and Rachel Wallis ’16 (MA).

RINGS!

June 5 – July 17, 2021

RINGS! offers a glimpse into the boundless creative freedom revealed within the ring form. This international selection brings together over one hundred rings that demonstrate the artists’ wide-ranging expressions through a variety of aesthetic and conceptual ideas. From the traditional techniques of metalsmithing to avant-garde materials and approaches, the rings on view will offer a new examination of the cultural, political, and personal meanings of the ring itself. Countries represented in the exhibition: Australia, Austria, England, Germany, India, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. Organized by Helen Drutt, researched by Elizabeth Essner with assistance from Colleen Terrell. Guests are highly encouraged to check each museum website for information about onsite health and safety guidelines that may be in place during your visit.
