Meg Aubrey, Alea Hurst and many of Metro Montage XIX artists will be available to share insight into their work.
Metro Montage is the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art’s annual juried exhibition featuring all types of genre, medium, style, subject matter, concept and technique in art. Metro Montage XIX features works of fine art by contemporary artists that showcase the diversity and skill within the nation’s culture.
This year, 72 works of art were chosen out of more than 500 submissions to represent a body of work that is a cohesive and encompassing celebration of creative expression.
Aubrey presents a selection of oil paintings that are primarily from her new Game series, which dissects themes such as loneliness, secrecy and artificiality through her manicured yet unnerving suburban scenes. Hurst’s oil paintings and serigraphs explore the wearing of masks and hiding of one’s face, but spin the concept around by using such outward presentation to reveal deeper truths about her subjects and society overall.
