The College's permanent art collection enriches the cultural climate on campus by making additional works of a high level of artistic achievement available to students and the community. In this manner, the collection serves as a permanent visual reference source.
Wayne Montecalvo and Laura Moriarty present, 'The Invisible Wall'. As a married couple, the two artists share a backyard studio in Rosendale. To maintain individual autonomy, they split their workspace equally down the middle, with one side being Wayne's territory and the other being Laura's. The Invisible Wall is the dividing line between their two art worlds, which they will mimic in the Muroff-Kotler exhibition.
Laura makes process-driven sculptural paintings whose forms, colors, textures and patterns are inspired by processes that shape and reshape the earth: heating and cooling, erosion, subduction, friction, enfolding, weathering, slippage.
Wayne makes one-of-a-kind, manipulated, distorted photographic silkscreen prints on a variety of surfaces. Building his images using collage techniques, Wayne incorporates distressed but planned elements that emphasize the unpredictable.
