Morris Arts and The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation are proud to present the twenty-fourth exhibit, SHIFTING GROUND, in the Gallery at 14 Maple. (Above, left: Anonda Bell, 4am #C)
The diverse and distinguished group of New Jersey artists, including Anonda Bell (Montclair), Martin Calvino (Highland Park), Hao Feng (Summit), Valerie Huhn (Summit), Troy Jones (Jersey City), and Danielle Scott (Plainfield), addresses the theme of the show, SHIFTING GROUND—using their unique artistic voices to examine elements of the strange and difficult times in which we live.
"Hao Feng (Left: Laughter in the Dark) created a series of mixed media works that reflect directly on people’s experiences of the pandemic, particularly isolation and its effects. In his series of weavings, Martin Calvino also addresses lived experience during the pandemic by literally writing crowd-sourced personal narratives onto slips of paper then weaving them into the weft of each piece. The Black Lives Matter movement gained urgency as a rash of racially motivated crimes and killings catalyzed protests throughout the country.
