MARIETTA - Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art will host an Opening Night Reception for Metro Montage XIX and Meg Aubrey and Alea Hurst: Veiled Realities on July 13, 2019 from 6 pm until 8 pm. Admission to the opening is $10 and free for members. Light hors d'oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available.

Meg Aubrey, Alea Hurst, and many of Metro Montage XIX artists will be available to share insight into their work. 

Metro Montage is the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art’s annual juried exhibition featuring all types of genre, medium, style, subject matter, concept, and technique in art. Metro Montage XIX features works of fine art by contemporary artists that showcase the diversity and skill within our nation’s culture. MCMA invites you to explore and embrace the breadth of work currently being created by artists across the United States. This year, 72 works of art were chosen out of more than 500 submissions to represent a body of work that is a cohesive and encompassing celebration of creative expression.

Meg Aubrey presents a selection of oil paintings that are primarily from her new Game series, which dissects themes such as loneliness, secrecy, and artificiality through her manicured yet unnerving suburban scenes. Alea Hurst’s oil paintings and serigraphs explore the wearing of masks and hiding of one’s face, but spin the concept around by using such outward presentation to reveal deeper truths about her subjects and society overall. Presented together, the two artists convey complementary but separate perspectives in artistic approaches to identity politics, presentation versus reality, and the consequences of exposing hidden truths.
