Galleries on the Go: A Night of Art in Town

Thursday, April 14, 2022 @ 7:30 pm to @ 9:30 pm

Join us for a night of art at the Princeton University Art Museum’s two downtown galleries and the Arts Council of Princeton! Drop into open houses at Art@Bainbridge, Art on Hulfish, and the Arts Council to enjoy live music, food and drink, student performances, art making, and gallery activities. 

At Art@Bainbridge, view the exhibition Elizabeth Colomba: Repainting the Story, in which the artist’s meticulous narrative paintings liberate Black women from restrictive story lines to reclaim their autonomy. At Art on Hulfish, view Native America: In Translation, curated by the artist Wendy Red Star. This exhibition gathers work by Indigenous artists who consider the complex histories of colonialism, identity, and heritage. In the Arts Council of Princeton’s Taplin Gallery, view the exhibition Still Lives from a (Mostly) Stilled Life, in which the artist Joe Kossow affirms the importance of looking, perceiving, drawing, composing, and finding a visual balance between drama and stability in oil paintings completed during the pandemic.

Shell Necklace-Making Workshop at Art on Hulfish
