Two pieces of Ronnie’s (which I believe we’ve seen on the Show and Tell table at past meetings) have been accepted into the Montclair Art Museum’s “New Jersey Craft Annual: Tribal Roots in the Garden State.”
The necklaces will be on display with other works by New Jersey visual artists and craftspeople from February 24 through May 11, 2008.
The Museum’s website (http://www.montclairartmuseum.org/exhibitions.cfm?id=19) provides the following description of the show:
“The curatorial theme and the exhibition’s title at MAM, Tribal Roots in the Garden State, was chosen by organizers Twig Johnson, Curator of Native American Art and MAM Board Member Janet Taylor Pickett as an opportunity for artists to be inspired by MAM’s unique collections of American and Native American art, which we believe inspires creativity and a deeper understanding of America’s unique diversity. This exhibition explores the artists sense of tribe, and ultimately celebrates the diversity of the Garden State and the multiculturalism found in our nation’s artistic legacy.”
