During her summer break, Upper School Fine Arts Instructor Madison Moreno may have stepped away from the GSB ceramics studio, but she hasn’t stayed away from her passion—creating beautiful works of art out of clay.
The accomplished artist was selected by the Hunterdon Art Museum to exhibit an original collection of her works on Sunday, August 7, and Sunday, August 14, as part of their Artful Sundays series. Situated outside on the museum’s terrace overlooking the picturesque Raritan River, the art fair features work by local artists in a variety of mediums including fiber, glass, jewelry, wood, steel, and—of course—ceramics!
“The Hunterdon Art Museum is in a beautiful location, right along the river,” said Ms. Moreno. “Lots of things are happening in Clinton, too, with all the restaurants and coffee shops. It’s a nice spot to be on a Sunday.”
The Artful Sundays display is free to the public and runs throughout the summer. Artists rotate based upon availability, and Ms. Moreno will be displaying her pieces from 11 am – 4 pm over the next two Sundays.
“The event is set up like a farmers market but for art,” Ms. Moreno explained. “The outdoor area is open to the public, and the artists are super talented.”
Ms. Moreno taught undergraduate classes at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where she also earned her Master of Fine Arts in Artisanry – Ceramics, before joining GSB. The Pennsylvania native is happy to be closer to home, and she can’t say enough about the amazing GSB facilities.
“I love the ceramic studio in the SBS Pavillion,” Ms. Moreno said. “It was recently updated with three new wheels and a new kiln thanks to the Parents’ Association. I’m very lucky to be there and to be working with the students.”
If you are looking for an outdoor activity this weekend or next in a beautiful location with inspiring creators, bring your GSB pride to the Hunterdon Art Museum and visit Ms. Moreno’s table. Everyone is welcome!
