Hunterdon Art Museum has partnered with THAT since its inception and is proud to present an exhibition of work by artists participating in the Tour. On Friday, April 30, from 7 PM to 9 PM, The Large Glass, hosted by Todd Lambrix and Terri McNamara, will live stream a virtual opening from the exhibition.
The exhibition also will be open on Saturday & Sunday, May 1 and 2, from 11 AM to 5 PM. Please see the Profile pages to view work by all of the participating artists.
Artwork in the exhibition will be for sale with 50% of each sale going to the artist, 25% benefiting HAM, and 25% funding THAT’s 2022 Tour.
In addition to the exhibition featuring all of the artists on the Tour, an exhibition of eight of Hunterdon County’s high school art teachers and – for the first time – eight of their students will be part of THAT. This show highlights a sample of the talented teachers who instruct our students and work created by those students.
A note from HATS:
“It is with great enthusiasm that we announce our first county-wide collaborative High School Art Teacher and Student show at the HAM’s, River Gallery. From the seeds of THAT (The Hunterdon Art Tour), HAT was born. With a nod to our profession, we have grown into HATS – Hunterdon Art Teachers and Students! We are incredibly honored and excited to help celebrate art and art education in Hunterdon County. HATS represents a cohort of Hunterdon County High School Art Teachers and their Students. This show celebrates the powerful and important relationship between student and teacher. Each of us, informs, grows, and learns from the other. And when it works well, it truly is symbiotic. We believe that being a good teacher is an art form in and of itself. But each of us is dedicated to being a teaching artist. We question, explore, interpret, and sometimes just make. Our art informs our teaching in a way that no textbook can.”
We thank THAT and HAM for their dedication to and support of the arts in Hunterdon County
