Hunter Invitational III

June 20 - October 19, 2014

The Hunter Invitational was developed in 2007 as a means to look deeply at some of the most significant artwork being created in our region. The third in the series, this new exhibition will offer an exciting look at recent pieces by artists Jan Chenoweth, Alicia Henry, Philip Andrew Lewis, Jiha Moon, Jeffrey Morton, Greg Pond, Jered Sprecher and Martha Whittington. All of these artists have shown an intense dedication to their work and a  passionate engagement with contemporary issues, and each was invited to show his or her latest series at the museum.
