Michael Malpass Retrospective 

Pollak Gallery - 9 AM

Exhibition extended thorough August 18. Michael Malpass’s (1946-1991) artistic legacy consists of sculpture, drawings , collage, paintings, and assemblages. He is best known for his spheres, which revitalize found industrial objects using bandsaw and traditional blacksmithing techniques. He described his sculpture, overall, as "a blend of artistry, collage, craftsmanship and movement," terms that could be applied to his work in other media, as well. His vast, stimulating and powerful body of work has established him as one of the most respected sculptors of the 20th century. There will be a documentary screening “Michael Malpass - A Great Circle” created by Monmouth University Communication students under the direction of Erin Fleming, May 18 at 10 AM in Wilson Hall.

WOMEN IN THE WORLD… A VISUAL PERSPECTIVE 

Pollak Gallery - 9 AM

The Women In the World…A Visual Perspective, art exhibit ties into the theme for Women In Media – Newark’s 8th annual Women’s History Month Film Festival (see event on pg. 34), and takes a broad look at the struggles and triumphs experienced by women globally. This exhibition, exquisitely curated by the renowned Gladys B. Grauer, uses the work of a socially and culturally diverse group of New Jersey based women artists to explore this seemingly simple topic. The images in this exhibit are not necessarily intended to be a literal interpretation of the theme, rather they often offer a metaphorical relationship to the theme. This inspiring exhibit is not to be missed! Opening Reception: Feb. 10, 6:30-8:30 PM
