  • Stitches in Time: Needlework as Art
    days needlework was often taught as part of a comprehensive educational curriculum that included academics as well as the arts The girls attended academies often in private homes where instructresses passed on their own style of needlework to their students The youngest schoolgirl represented in the exhibition is Sarah Elizabeth Carney of either Gloucester or Salem County who worked her sampler in Her 6th Year 1823 By stitching numbers and letters she was also learning them Her skills would come in handy in later years when domestic duties included mending clothes and marking valuable household linens Occupying 1 709 square feet in five galleries the exhibit includes works from every region of the state Many are elaborate others are simpler replete with verses that reflect moral values of the times Recommended Reading A New Year Celebration And Much More A rare artifact on loan from the Monmouth County Historical Association is a silk globe This round piece of needlework helped to teach geography and can be compared to a student s final thesis in today s academic world explains Bernadette Rogoff collections curator for the historical association Morven will host an opening needlework symposium October 5 at Princeton s Nassau Inn Speakers will include experts and collectors from around the country For information visit the museum website Click to enlarge images These intricate needlepoints can be seen at Morven Museum and Garden through March 2015 World View Creating this needlework globe doubled as one schoolgirl s geography lesson Read more Culture Corner Historic Jersey Jersey Living articles By submitting comments you grant permission for all or part of those comments to appear in the print edition of New Jersey Monthly 7 Songs to Comfort Christie on His Failed Presidential Bid Podcast Why We re Called The Garden State Table Hopping

  • The Montclair Art Museum Establishes Itself As An Outsanding Regional Museum-www.njmonthly.com
    and garnered terrific reviews In March the museum will mount an exhibit of Andy Warhol s depictions of automobiles in popular culture The show will include Warhol s painting Twelve Cadillacs which is owned by the museum and inspired the exhibit It is one of Warhol s early silkscreens and was part of a little known group of car paintings the artist did for Harper s Bazaar in 1962 Urbanelli says the exhibit will be enhanced by art activities for families and perhaps even a classic car show in the museum s parking lot to tie into the automobile theme Warhol is very popular he s a household name and now he s an American icon says Urbanelli This show will be exciting and challenging for us and it speaks to our desire to make art and museums more accessible to people Recommended Reading A New Year Celebration And Much More And that s the direction the museum is going says Urbanelli adding that a Georgia O Keefe exhibit is also being planned for sometime in the next few years As MAM nears its 100th birthday in 2014 museum officials are reevaluating its role in the community while they look toward the future We know who we are but how do we want to see ourselves at 100 years old she says The museum s mission has changed over the years In 1911 museums thought of themselves as more elitist with a pretty exclusive group of people that used them No museum thinks of itself that way today We have a very different view of what and who art is for Now the purpose of a museum is for everyone to enjoy it That also means striking a balance between contributing to the field of knowledge in art through exhibits and appealing to those who may not have a background in art but who just enjoy going to museums We try not to think just about scholarship but also about popular culture and contemporary art says Urbanelli How does art fit into the average person s everyday life Like many other institutions these days the museum is struggling with budget pressures In 2009 it took a major hit in funding and cut nearly a quarter of its staff But Urbanelli says MAM still is able to keep intact most of the museum s programming including its art classes That s important she says because reduced programs usually mean reduced community interest and donations We re not completely out of the woods yet We re working on keeping our donations up and we re hoping people will continue to support us she says Having a great suburban regional art museum here is very special and we should celebrate that Click to enlarge images Andy Warhol s little known car paintings are among works on display this month as part of the Montclair Art Museum s Warhol exhibit Andy Warhol s Twelve Cadillacs Read more Culture Corner Jersey Living articles By submitting
