  • Mariboe Gallery: Accra Shepp

    September 7 - October 3
    Opening reception: Friday, September 7 from 6:30-8:00 p.m., with an artist talk at 7:00 p.m.
    On September 30, 2011, photographer Accra Shepp went to Zuccotti Park in New York City to investigate the Occupy Wall Street protests. Sensing that the demonstrations had the potential to be historically significant, he used a large format camera to capture the diversity of the participants and their activities. Shepp was the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship to Indonesia in 1999. He had a solo exhibition in 1997 at the Whitney Museum of American Art. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, Harper's Magazine, and Camera Arts, among other publications.
  • Mariboe Gallery: Frank Rivera

    October 12 - November 2
    Opening reception: Friday, October 12 from 6:30-8:00 p.m., with an artist talk at 7:00 p.m.
    Captivated by the 15th Century masters at a young age, Frank Rivera also developed an early fondness for the art of the predella (small serial panels affixed to the bottom of an altarpiece). The serial format of his new, smaller works shows the influences of storyboard graphics, computer art, underground comics from the 1980s, and the predella. Born in 1939, Rivera taught for many years at Mercer County Community College.

  • Mariboe Gallery: Shanti Grumbine

    January 11-February 8
    Opening Reception: Friday January 11, from 6:30-8:00 p.m., with an artist talk at 7:00 p.m.
    Shanti Grumbine's Kenosis project involves the erasure, excision, and reconfiguration of the New York Times to elicit a sacred experience of the everyday. Kenosis is an ancient Greek noun for emptiness or an emptying. By physically removing content, Grumbine's works make space for what has been forgotten, suppressed, or ignored in print, as well as what is lost in translation of experience into words. Kenosis functions as a ritualistic act of beauty to mend the deficits of human ingenuity.
  • Winter Student Art Exhibit

    March 22-April 17
    Opening reception: Friday March 22 from 6:30-8:00 p.m., with an artist talk at 7:00 p.m.

  • Mariboe Gallery: Sculptor Patrick Strzelec

    Patrick Strzelec makes abstract sculpture with an incredibly diverse range of materials — aluminum, ceramic, epoxy, plaster, steel, and wood, to name a few. His mastery of these materials, as well as his unique ability to transform them into highly charismatic — albeit somewhat inscrutable — objects and forms has earned him numerous awards in sculpture, including the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship; the Ballingkillings Project in Ireland; the Rome Prize, Rome, Italy; a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts; and numerous New Jersey State Council for the Arts grants. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe. Mr. Strzelec is the former Rudolph Arnheim Lecturer in Sculpture at Harvard University. Opening reception October 8 at 6:30 p.m.

  • Winter Student Art Exhibit

  • Mariboe Gallery: Gina Siepel

    Gina Siepel’s diverse works explore the relationship between process, performance, and the construction of identity, connecting disparate American ideologies, from Thoreauvian ethics to Queer theory to the “self-reliance” championed by the political Right. These investigations draw on the work of such iconic 19th- and early 20th-century American thinkers as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John James Audubon, Winslow Homer, and Emma Goldman. Siepel integrates her conceptual inquiry with a deep engagement in craftsmanship and a love of materials. Opening reception at 6:30 p.m. on April 1.
  • Honors Studio Art Thesis Exhibition

  • Spring Student Art Exhibition

  • Photographer Nelson Chan

    Opening night reception Friday, September 11 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Artist talk at 7:00 p.m. Exhibit runs through October 2.

    Photographer Nelson Chan was born in New Jersey to immigrant parents from Hong Kong and Taiwan and has spent most of his life between the States and Hong Kong. Having grown up on two continents with unique cultures, this immigrant experience has influenced the majority of Chan’s work. He continues to explore this duality of personal and cultural identity through the medium of photography. He is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, where he received a BFA and a graduate of the University of Hartford, Hartford Art School, where he received his MFA.
  • Multi-Disciplinary Artist Kenny Rivero

    Multidisciplinary Artist Kenny Rivero presents his work with an opening reception and panel discussion beginning at 7:15 p.m. Fiction writer Xuan Juliana Wang will be on hand to discuss the intersection of visual arts, writing, and personal narrative, Exhibit runs through November 5.  Exhibit runs trhough November 5.

    Although Rivero’s work often begins with explorations of color, texture, and markmaking, his stories do not rely on formal mechanics alone. Such materials as the sweep piles, house paint, and salvaged paper he often utilizes, possess complex identities and specific historical auras. A specific narrative emerges within each work — a story layered with affiliations, loyalties, psycho-social histories, and personal, as well as shared, iconography. Kenny Rivero was born and raised in Washington Heights, New York City. He received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2006 and an MFA from Yale University in 2012.
  • Photographer Daniel Hoffman

    Opening night reception Wednesday, December 2 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. with artist talk at 7:00 p.m.

    Daniel Hoffman seeks to make images that require him to move outside of his comfort zone and engage people and situations different from the familiar. Early projects documenting people and life in Times Square after dark, as well as work on the plight of gypsies living as refugees, allowed him to gain valuable experience and develop the skills to approach complete strangers, engage with them, and enter their world through photography. For this exhibit, Hoffman will present his latest project centered around The Worm, a 2-mile elevated highway in one of the largest cities in the world, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The Worm was given its name to reflect the twists and turns it follows through the city. Yet, by suggesting it has a life, Hoffman seeks to understand how the people who use, live by and work under The Worm, ultimately breathe life into its space.
  • The Veil Decoded: A Cross-Cultural Survey of Veils and Traditional Dress, Curated by Isabella de la Houssaye

    Opening reception Monday, December 14 from 7:15-8:00 p.m.

    In conjunction with Peddie's History Department and the Asian Studies Program, the Mariboe Gallery will host the installation of veils and traditional dress from across Africa, central Asia, and the Middle East. Exhibit curator Isabella de la Houssaye has amassed a collection of textiles that speak to a diversity of cultural and religious traditions, and the layers of personal identity embedded in each object. Through interactions with students, connections to visual arts and history curriculum, and a talk by Ms. de la Houssaye, the exhibit seeks to investigate the complexity and meanings surrounding these garments.

  • Painter Julie Langsam

    Opening reception on Wednesday, January 20 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. with artist talk at 7:00 p.m.

    Julie Langsam’s paintings of iconic Modernist buildings designed by such celebrated architects as Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, and Le Corbusier, negotiate and question the legacy of modernism and its effect on contemporary culture.Within these paintings, the isolated buildings are positioned on the horizon line between an expansive and lustrous sky at sunset and abstract color fields. Representations of toxic landscapes reference the painterly sublime, serving as the ground for modernist architectural marvels, structures that evoke notions of failed utopias. Langsam is currently an Assistant Professor of Drawing at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts. Langsam received her BFA from Purchase College, SUNY in 1983 and a MFA from Queens College, CUNY in 1985.
