Montclair, NJ (February, 2018) – Studio Montclair (SMI) presents the exhibit, “Discovery in the Detail,” a visual exploration of the meaning that can found by focusing on close-up views of works of art. The exhibit will be on view from April 6 through May 19, 2018 at the Studio Montclair Gallery, 127 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, NJ. An opening reception will be held on Friday, April 6 from 7 to 9pm.

The show features work in a variety of visual media in which the artist discovered a detail that they found compelling enough to be expanded into a new stand-alone piece. Both the new piece and the work with the detail that inspired it will be exhibited. This side-by-side presentation will encourage the viewer to explore the depth and nuances of the artwork, and provide unique insight into the artist’s creative thinking and techniques.

Explains curator Nette Forné Thomas, “Without the obligation to adhere to a set theme, this introspective focus on an art piece created or to be created, afforded the artists the opportunity to portray the primary intention of the work and then discover the unintentional intriguing effect of a particular detail.”
