(MONTCLAIR, NJ) -- “Studio Montclair’s annual exhibition ViewPoints does not disappoint.  With over 70 artists and artworks selected from hundreds of talented entries, a high level of skill and innovation is on display. The works in the exhibition are merely a slice of the vast ways artists are telling the story of what it means to be human in the 21st century. Primarily told through painting, photography, and collage, they cover themes of nature, transformation, joy, and death. Replete with skill and exciting techniques, this was a difficult group of works to jury.

“There are many gems for thought running through the works in this exhibition, and the conversations between them will be great and expanding. I am honored to have the opportunity to participate in the production of Viewpoints 2023 and look forward to revisiting the artworks in the gallery,” said Juror, Diedra Harris Kelley, Co-director of the Romare Bearden Foundation.

Diedra Harris-Kelley’s curatorial experience is wide-ranging from photography, painting and prints to contemporary art and has served as the Curatorial Consultant for an exhibition program at Jazz at Lincoln Center.  She has deep experience as a college level instructor having taught at Barnard College, “Romare Bearden: Home is Harlem” as part of the Harlem Semester Initiative, Columbia University, NYC in the Institute for Research in African American Studies (IRAAS) and at New York University.  Ms. Harris-Kelley currently serves as the Co-director of the Romare Bearden Foundation. Ms. Harris-Kelley has a BA in Fine/Studio Arts from California State University, Long Beach and a MFA from the University of Michigan.
