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.

CON­TACT: For more in­for­ma­tion on the ex­hibit, con­tact the gallery at (845) 687-5113.
