Upcoming Masur Event

Opening Reception & Artist Talks for Two Exhibitions!!!

 Seeing and Believing: Recent Work by James Surls

November 3, 2011 – January 28, 2012

 World renowned artist, James Surls, will give a brief talk at the opening reception for Seeing and Believing, the Masur’s latest exhibition.  Come for the talk, stay for refreshments and engaging art!  This event is FREE.*

This exhibition features sculptures and drawings with strong gestural and representational elements.  Surls’ art deals with the phenomenal and noumenal worlds we inhabit.  He simultaneously interprets substantive experience, touching on scientific ideas like genomes and the natural order of flora and fauna while also attempting to give physical form to unseen elements that influence the course of events both large and small such as emotions, the subconscious, and the inexplicable urge of life to persist.

Michael Manjarris’ Rate of Exchange

November 3, 2011 – January 28, 2012

Michael Manjarris’ career as an artist/curator is geared around the give and take concept of cultural exchange.  He is concerned with how artworks, individuals, groups, and even whole cultures interact with one another in the market place of ideas.  Please join us as he presents one way of making sense of a world where different cultures collide and create something new.

Michael Manjarris is a world-class sculptor and curator of public art.  His current curatorial project Sculpture for New Orleans emphasizes the positive effects of public art on a community.  He has worked with the Calder Foundation, Louise Bourgeois, Christy Hengst, Mark DiSuvero, Tara Conley, and many more.  Come for the talk, stay for refreshments and engaging art!  This event is FREE.*
