Sculptures by Professor of Art Rebecca Murtaugh are on display in two exhibitions in New York.
Her work appears in Fur Cup at Underdonk in Brooklyn, through Nov. 17. This group exhibition of sculptural works brings together pieces from 30 artists and features a variety of materials, including glass, wood, clay, paper maché, found objects, plaster, metal, fabric, and plastic.
According to the gallery website, “The show’s title makes reference to Meret Oppenheim’s ‘Object,’ made in 1936, a work which utilizes a fur-covered cup, saucer, and spoon.”
The works on display in Fur Cup “all hold true to the idea of an open or closed form that combines formal qualities into unusual arrangements: geometric and gestural, homemade and factory-made, transparent and opaque, opulent and sci-fi, functional and non-functional, fragile and resilient, real and unreal, printed and handmade, ornate and natural.”
Underdonk, located on Willoughby Ave., is open from 1 to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, or by appointment.
Murtaugh will also be exhibiting a five-piece sculpture installation in Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Region at The Hyde Collection. The annual juried exhibition runs through Dec. 4 and features works from contemporary artists living within a 100-mile radius of New York’s Capital Region.
The Hyde Collection is located on Warren Street in Glens Falls. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
