All of us at Mark Moore Gallery are pleased to announce many new museum acquisitions from our artists in such a short time since the beginning of the year.
Captain, 2012 / Oil on Linen / 68 x 84 inches
Acquired by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego
The Santa Barbara Museum of Art has acquired Okay Mountain‘s 2011 video work, “Instructional Video,” but also, both the Orange County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego have acquired the last two remaining edition copies of Okay Mountain’s 2010 video “Water Water Everywhere So Let’s All Have a Drink.” In addition, MCASD has also taken Allison Schulnik‘s 2009 animation “Forest” and her large oil painting titled “Captain,” that was featured in her last solo exhibition at Mark Moore Gallery in 2012.
Allison Schulnik again has had work acquired by a museum this year with “Mound,” her most recent animation that premiered at her 2011 solo show at ZieherSmith in New York as well as being featured in her current exhibition at the Laguna Art Museum. The final edition copy of “Mound” has just been acquired by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Also in this short period of time, David Hilliard‘s “5 Cords” has been acquired by the Portland Art Museum, and Tim Bavington‘s “Cry You A Song” has gone to the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.
All of this signals an exciting start to 2013 so far with many other museum acquisitions currently pending. Institutions such as the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the McNay Art Museum, the Blanton Museum of Art, the Honolulu Museum of Art, and the Orange County Museum of Art are pending approval on works by Mark Moore Gallery artists Okay Mountain, Penelope Umbrico, Tim Bavington, and Cindy Wright.

In his lecture earlier this month at Dartmouth University, artist-in-residence David Hilliard offered up some frank insight to his photography practice and background – a rare quality afforded to college students seeking artistic direction and development. Said the artist:
“I often show my own experience, but it may also relate to someone else’s life. We may not do this in particular, but we do something else that may raise some eyebrows.”
In addition to the artist’s current mini-retrospective at the university, “Highway of Thoughts” (on view through May 2, 2010), Hilliard will hold several classes for active photography students, and offer portfolio critiques. Dartmouth has also produced a new catalogue chronicling Hilliard’s work to date, along with an insightful essay.
The catalogue is available for purchase for $10 (plus shipping) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University of Maine Museum of Art is currently featuring works by MMG’s David Hilliard, on view through September 19, 2009. “Highway of Thought: Photographs by David Hilliard” is showing in conjunction with exhibitions by Connie Imboden and Christopher Frost. For more information regarding this show, please visit UMMA’s website here.
