The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) and MOAH:CEDAR are excited to launch their newest exhibition, Continuum, featuring work by Los Angeles based artist Monica Wyatt.
The exhibition’s opening reception will be held at MOAH:CEDAR on Saturday, January 20 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.; and is free to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Monica Wyatt is an artistic alchemist, transforming collected materials into precious objects. She fuses the history of the materials together to create new beginnings, representing the cyclic nature of all things. Wyatt challenges her audience to consider the aesthetic traits of each object rather than judge them by their intended use.
Continuum is Wyatt’s first installation in her ongoing collaboration with curator Jill Moniz. The works on display are transformations of man-made objects into forms that signify qualities of nature. In her assemblage, electric capacitors resemble plant life and zip ties mimic deep sea creatures.
Together with the Museum of Art and History, MOAH:CEDAR is a catalyst for engaging diverse audiences through captivating exhibitions, innovative artists, and dynamic programming. The gallery aspires to encourage progressive ideas and experimental genres of artwork, which highlight performance, education, and studio practice. MOAH:CEDAR is located at 44857 Cedar Avenue, and is open Thursday through Sunday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information visit: www.lancastermoah.org.
