Recent Museum Acquisitions from Mark Moore Gallery

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.

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.

Okay Mountain in Chattanooga: UTC Cress Gallery of Art

The Okay Mountain boys will be visiting Chattanooga, Tennessee next month for an exhibition and lecture at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s Cress Gallery.

Okay Mountain at the Cress will be a departure from the collaborative’s previous exhibitions.  Rather than feature a single installation, this exhibition will feature a recent retrospective of three works in a range of media previously premiered at other locations, and a fourth work to be unveiled in the Cress.  Expect great things.
