Art Exhibitions On View for Museum Explorers

Thinking Outside the Frame   |  Open through September 30, 2018

New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU) and the California Society of Printmakers is pleased to present Thinking Outside the Frame, a  juried printmaking exhibition featuring works that fall outside of the realm of traditional printmaking, including large-scale prints, installation and book arts. Museum Explorers will have the rare opportunity to dive into the world of printmaking and the variety of different ways it can be incorporated into art.  Whilst viewing the artwork featured, students will be asked to examine how different methods of printmaking can add to the expression and feeling of each artwork. Students will have the opportunity to examine all types of printmaking work from 2 dimensional textiles, 3 dimensional Map foldings, and virtual stop motion videos to truly develop a thorough understanding of the different ways in which printmaking can be utilized.

Circle of Truth   |   October 18, 2018 - March 10, 2019

New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU) is pleased to present Circle Truth, a wholly unique “collaboration” of 49 different contemporary artists. Presented as a visual game of “telephone,” this exhibit features 49 different paintings from painters across the world.  Each painter was given a blank canvas, and an anonymous painting from the painter that preceded them. Their only instructions were to find and paint the truth of the other painting. Having no background information on the previous artist, or their thought process, it was completely up to each artist to interpret the concept of “truth.”  Museum Explorers will have the opportunity to examine the concept of “truth” and how it can be explained visually. Students will learn how to discuss and interpret artwork in a new and exciting way. This exhibit offers the unique opportunity to examine a variety of different styles of artwork ranging from abstract expressionism to representational realism all while focusing on the concept of “truth.”  Students will discuss the many nuances of “truth” and how it can change with time and different circumstances.

ArtNow Exhibition   |   March 21, 2019 - May 5, 2019

ArtNow is an annual juried Santa Clara County high school art exhibition and educational program, presented by New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU). The ArtNow Exhibition and supporting programs offer opportunities for high school student artists, from Palo Alto to Gilroy, to gain real-world experience in participating in a juried museum exhibition. Each year a theme for students to interpret is given.  This year student artists are asked to create artwork centered around the theme of “Dare.” Museum Explorers will be exposed to a variety of different types of art, including: paintings, drawings, digital media, photography, and 3D works of art. This variety of art provides students with the rare opportunity to compare different styles and perspectives of “Dare.” Museum Explorers will also discuss the fundamentals of art through a wide array of lenses.
