After closing for renovations all spring and summer, the Atrium Gallery is back with a dramatic Fall/Winter 2013-14 Exhibit, located on Floors 3-5 of the Morris County Administration and Records Building, 10 Court Street in Morristown.
Left: Marsha Solomon’s acrylic, Tunnels in the Wood.
Embracing a wide variety of subject matter (landscapes, abstracts, portraits, etc.) and media (oil, acrylic, photography, “found object” installations, etc.), the artworks highlight the creative energies of 4 select artists 118 of whose works now appear on the top three floors of the Gallery. Dramatically vibrant oils by Karen Lundquist grace the 5th floor while a host of brilliantly colored abstracts and realist/figurative acrylic works by prizewinning artist Marsha Solomon occupy the 4th floor. On the 3rd floor, viewers will find Rebecca Zagoory’s powerful and striking architectural and fine art photographs. The creative and whimsical “found object” figurative sculptures and installations by award-winning artist Suprina were recently removed from the 2nd floor for courthouse security reasons but they are available in a “virtual exhibit” – via YouTube videos HERE. (Additionally, a portion of the sculptures are on exhibit at Gallery Aferro in Newark for the first portion of November.)
L-R: Karen Lundquist oil, July Afternoon in the Garden; Rebecca Zagoory’s photograph, Inside the Harp; Suprina’s sculpture, Toupée; Marsha Solomon’s acrylic, Still Life in Venetian Red.
