2022 Members Exhibition: Call for Entries

September 25, 2022 - January 8, 2023

One member will win a future solo exhibition!

This annual exhibition showcases the diverse talents of the members of the Hunterdon Art Museum. The artists work in an array of media including photography, sculpture, fiber, glass, printmaking, oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastel, pencil, and collage.

Juror

Wexler Gallery owner, Lewis Wexler, began his career in the arts in the late 1980s as Assistant Vice President of 20th Century Decorative Arts at Christie’s auction house in New York City. Following his work at Christie’s, Lewis worked with world-renowned French art Deco dealer Anthony Delorenzo at his Madison Avenue gallery. He has lectured extensively throughout the United States at institutions including The Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery, The Furniture Society Conference, UBS’ Annual Global Media & Communications Conference, and SOFA Chicago (Sculptural Objects Functional Art fair). He has been featured in various national publications and appeared on the cover of Art & Antiques magazine in October 2005. Committed to the promotion of finely crafted work that pushes the perception of art, craft, and Design, Lewis has also been on the jury to select work for important exhibitions throughout the US.

Wexler Gallery opened in 2000 in the historic district of Old City in Philadelphia and later expanded its presence to New York City in 2018. Since its inception, the gallery has proudly showcased extraordinary work by both established artists and the emerging talent of today. Learn more about Wexler Gallery here.
