(MAHWAH) – As part of its Tenth Anniversary Celebration for the Angelica and Russ Berrie Center for Performing and Visual Arts, a multi-media exhibition of works by visual arts alumni who studied in the Berrie Center, “Tops in Ten: A Selection,” will be on view from February 6 through February 26 in the Kresge Gallery.
“The artists on view have established their artistic practice on a par equal to the best work being seen in leading edge galleries in New York and Berlin,” says Sydney Jenkins, director of the Art Galleries. “The subject matter is varied, ranging from Los Angeles painter Dan Monteavaro’s compelling animal compositions, to Robin Cross-Keller’s ‘Life of the Professor’ series, to Bil Thompson’s film work with celebrities.”
Artists include, Hannah Craft (sculpture/installation), Eva Fazzari (photography), Robin Cross-Keller (paintings), Joshua Knoblick (sculpture), Robert Modafferi (sculpture/installation), Dan Monteavaro (painting), and Bil Thompson (film).
The opening reception will be Saturday, February 6, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. with artists’ talks at 7:30 p.m. Gallery hours are Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Wednesday from 1 to 7 p.m. Special Saturday hours on February 6 only are 3 to 8:30 p.m. Please note that the gallery will be closed during the College’s spring break, from March 14-21.
This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
