Montclair Public Library’s art series celebrates Black History Month
The Montclair Public Library features local artists in continued art series, “Other Imagery,” on view in the Montclair Public Library Gallery through Feb. 25.
The exhibit, consisting of both fine and photographic art, features local artists Paul D. Brown, Glen Frieson and Willie Kearney. Held over for Black History Month, the show represents over 100 years of collective involvement in the capture of the "visually stimulating," according to a library press release.
Brown began taking photographs in the 1960s before gravitating toward film and video, according to the release. Frieson's range is vast, with candids, architecture, points of interest and art as some of his subject matter. Kearney's art reflects the melding of the past and present in using both traditional and non-traditional media, incorporating themes from major world religions.
