Opening reception Second Saturday, Sept. 12
Matteawan Gallery will present an exhibition of paintings and collages by Thomas Huber from Sept. 12 through Oct. 4, with an opening reception Saturday, Sept. 12, from 6 to 9 p.m.
This is Huber’s first solo show with the gallery, and the inaugural show in the gallery’s new, larger space at 436 Main St. in Beacon. The new space will be able to accommodate larger work, as well as performances and events. The first event in the new space will be an artist talk with Huber on Saturday, Sept. 26, at 3 p.m.
Huber’s collages and paintings are composed of an array of disparate images and materials. He begins with a thickly sculpted gesso ground that becomes the background for a collage of found lists, scraps of paper with diagrams, doodles and other personal notations, images from magazines, drawings and paint.
Huber’s work has been exhibited throughout the Hudson Valley, in New York City and New England, as well as in Montrea. Huber received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. He currently lives in Cold Spring.
