Credits: Montclair State University

MONTCLAIR, NJ - Since the early 1960's Montclair State University has been quietly amassing an eclectic collection of fine art, mostly by American artists, with a primary focus on individuals from or connected to New Jersey.

The Works on Paper Collection is the first in a series of exhibitions that features prints, drawings, watercolor paintings and collages including works by George Segal (NJ), Alexander Calder (CT), Will Barnett (NY), Andy Warhol (PA), Andre Masson (France) and Richard Anuszkiewicz (PA).

Curated by Teresa Lapid Rodriguez, Director of the George Segal Gallery, the exhibit opened on September 18 and will be on display at the campus gallery through December 20.

"The selected art in the Works on Paper Collection spans years, continents, cultures, and perspectives to offer a range of interpretations on the world from diverse artistic aesthetics," said Rodriguez, "In studying the entirety of the university's paper collection, I was struck by many possibilities of expression that art offers to individual artists, and how their portrayals of the world around them are as different as the artists themselves. Each of the works in this exhibit offers a snatch of life-a window into the soul of the artist and the influences that inspired them to make their art." 

The Andy Warhol Foundation fo rthe Visual Arts donated 103 Polaroid and 50 Black and White silkscreens from the foundations archives. These Warhol pieces will be on public display for the first time ever in the Works on Paper Collection exhibit, along with rarely seen works by other artisits.
