2023 INSPIRED BY Exhibition: The Weight of Object

For this exhibit the curators are asking artists to consider how size, perspective or repetition of an object as compositional can be interpreted. Take into consideration the position, the angle or the visual weight of an object within the picture plane and how this impacts a viewer’s understanding of a work.

Studio Montclair’s Virginia S. Block Community Partnership Exhibition Program
This exhibition is the sixth in SMI’s Community Partnership Exhibition Program created by cofounder and past president Virginia S. Block. The partnership aims to reach out to other nonprofit organizations each year to create a collaborative exhibition designed to inspire our members, create new connections, and reach new audiences.

SMI and Montclair Art Museum are partnering in the Fall of 2023 to create a unique exhibition of works inspired by MAM’s upcoming exhibition “Taking Space: Contemporary Women and the Politics of Scale”. This joint exhibition will be displayed concurrently at two locations in Montclair: Studio Montclair’s 3,000 square foot Leach Gallery and MAM’s Vance Wall Art Education Center Gallery.
