All are invited to attend an opening reception for the museum’s spring exhibitions, including Maxwell Mustardo: “Dish-Oriented” and Rina Banerjee: “Blemish, In Deep Pink Everyplace Begins.” Artist talks will begin at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday in the galleries.
“Blemish, In Deep Pink Everything Begins”, explores the work of Banerjee, who has had solo exhibitions around the world. Exhibitions in France, Japan, Singapore, Norway, Italy, India and New Zealand to name a few, have led her to be exciting. , paintings, drawings and installations cacophonous to many audiences. The found objects in his installations and the imagery in his paintings and drawings combine Western and Eastern cultures, speaking of colonialism and the diaspora.
Mustardo’s unconventional approach to ceramics is reflected in the title of his show, “Dish-oriented”, as well as in the work itself. Leaving traditional glazes and shapes to others, Mustardo’s work is totally his own. Glorious colors, bubbling glazes and anthropomorphic shapes create a dazzling array of works.
