Spring Exhibition Celebration

June 4, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Meet & mingle with NUMU exhibiting artists and celebrate the museum’s current exhibitions.

Join us for an afternoon in the NUMU galleries to celebrate three insightful artists currently exhibiting at the museum. Get ready for a unique opportunity to meet abstract painter Luz Donahue, photographer Jane Olin, and textile artist Alexander Hernandez. Together, we’ll learn more about their artwork practice and current exhibitions. We’ll enjoy live music, tasty hors d’oeuvres, and refreshing beverages. And be sure to join us by 2pm to hear remarks from these talented artists!

RETAZOS New Works by Alexander Hernandez in Residence is generously supported by Penumbra. With additional support from The Baymec Community Foundation, and The Waitte Foundation.

Major support for NUMU’s exhibition Jane Olin – In The Company of Trees provided by the Town of Los Gatos, and an anonymous donor.

In the Artist’s Studio is generously supported by the Borgenicht Foundation.

In the main gallery, we’ll be opening the Retazos – NUMU’s inaugural Artist in Residence exhibition featuring Alexander Hernandez. As part of his residence, Hernandez has created new work inspired by objects in NUMU’s permanent collections such as historic garments, quilts, toys, pop-culture artifacts, and patterned textiles. Hernandez’s new works continue the tradition of illuminating lived moments on quilts, with words and modern designs that are given even deeper meaning by the past lives of his found retazos – remnant fabrics.

In the spotlight gallery, we will bid a fond farewell to the intimate exhibition, In the Company of Trees, which showcases the work of photographer Jane Olin. Olin’s expressive approach and her innovatively processed prints reveal a haunting and unparalleled perspective on trees. Her work conveys both the seeds of hope and the seeds of impending destruction, which only human beings can resolve.

Also joining us is Luz Donahue, who is currently featured in our rotating exhibition series In the Artist’s Studio. Donahue has carved a practice by guiding people through unknown and sometimes difficult emotional pathways, towards unexpected insight. Through In the Artist’s Studio, we get a glimpse at the creative process of someone who can reveal poetry from the chaos of the blank canvas. Her miniature watercolor paintings portray the richness that a universe of possibilities affords to those who are willing to listen.
