Murtaugh Exhibits in Brooklyn and Queens
Associate Professor of Art Rebecca Murtaugh’s work is included in exhibitions in Brooklyn and Queens, N.Y.
A sculpture is featured in Plus One at Trestle Contemporary Art Gallery in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The show, which opened in November, runs through Saturday, Jan. 6, by appointment only. Plus One acknowledges and celebrates how top contemporary artists wear many hats in our current art world.
Murtaugh’s work will also appear in the Nasty Women Art Exhibition at the Knockdown Center in Maspeth, Queens, Jan. 12-15. An opening reception is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 12, from 7 to 10 p.m.
Nasty Women is a crowd-sourced, group show by female and female-identifying artists. It was organized to “demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights,” according to the exhibition website.
“It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights and to be a platform for organization before the Trump Presidential Inauguration in January,” the description continues.
The Huffington Post featured an article about the project on Jan. 4. “Nearly 700 ‘Nasty Women’ Artists Have Teamed Up To Protest Trump” included images of work by several of the participating artists, including Murtaugh.
In addition, two of Murtaugh’s works on paper are included in The Flat Files: Year Four at Tiger Strikes Asteroid. The pieces will be in the Brooklyn gallery’s flat file through December.
