‘Invisible Wall’ opens at SUNY Ulster
WHAT: “The Invisible Wall,” Works by Wayne Montecalvo and Laura Moriarty
WHEN: Opening reception takes place Nov. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. The show runs through Dec. 9.
WHERE: Muroff-Kotler Visual Arts Gallery at SUNY Ulster, 491 Cotekill Road, Stone Ridge
DETAILS: SUNY Ulster will host an opening reception as artists Wayne Montecalvo and Laura Moriarty kick off their “The Invisible Wall” exhibit. Montecalvo and Moriarty, a married couple, share a backyard studio in Rosendale. To maintain individual autonomy, they split their workspace equally down the middle, with one side being Wayne’s territory and the other being Laura’s. “The Invisible Wall” is the dividing line between their two art worlds, which they will mimic in the Muroff-Kotler exhibition. Moriarty makes process-driven sculptural paintings whose forms, colors, textures and patterns are inspired by processes that shape and reshape the earth: heating and cooling, erosion, subduction, friction, enfolding, weathering, slippage. Montecalvo makes one-of-a-kind, manipulated, distorted photographic silkscreen prints on a variety of surfaces. Building his images using collage techniques, Wayne incorporates distressed but planned elements that emphasize the unpredictable.
