September 28 – December 7, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, September 27, 5:30-8 PM
Or Both is an experimental two-part exhibition that includes a solo presentation of work by Ulrike Müller alongside a group show of works by Martin Beck, Barbara Chase-Riboud, Jennie C. Jones, Eric N. Mack, Medrie MacPhee, Dona Nelson, and Deborah Remington. Moving in and out of painting, Müller employs a range of materials, techniques, and image formats including drawing, enamel on steel, collage, monotype, and woven wool rugs. Taking Müller's practice as a point of departure, the group show is organized around compositional strategies and methods of decision making rather than around a shared subject matter or theme, opening up new possibilities for reading artworks together that might not seem immediately connected. Organized by Mia Locks.
JILL BONOVITZ, JUNE KELLY, AND PAULA SCHER: VISIONARY WOMEN

Lecture and Gala: Wednesday, October 2
The Galleries at Moore are pleased to honor this year's three Visionary Women Awardees: Jill Bonovitz, artist; June Kelly, gallerist; and Paula Scher, graphic artist with presence in the fall exhibition season. Since 2003, the Visionary Woman Awards (VWA) has recognized outstanding women leaders who have made a powerful impact on the worlds of art and design—through our VWA scholarship program, Moore supports the extraordinary achievements of women who provide powerful role models for our students. A selection of Bonovitz's wire sculptures and porcelain vessels will be on view in Wilson Gallery. Graham Gallery will feature posters and design projects from Scher's portfolio, along with interviews and ephemera celebrating Kelly's more than thirty year's as a gallerist who represents over thirty artists.

Exhibiting artists: Shona McAndrew, Matt Osborn, and Stacey Lee Webber.
