American Visions, 1870–1940: Works from the Bank of America Collection

Sponsored by Montclair Art Museum. 3 South Mountain Ave, Montclair. The exhibition explores the ways in which local artists interpreted America’s rural, maritime, and urban spaces and portrayed daily life using the Impressionist devices of capturing the moment with brisk brushstrokes, a vibrant palette, and atmospheric effects. It provides a thought-provoking historical context for American Impressionism by positioning it between the Hudson River School—whose majestic landscapes influenced, then gradually gave way to, French Impressionist–inspired works—and the modernist trends evident in the later pieces on view.The exhibition at the Montclair Art Museum is organized by Gail Stavitsky, MAM chief curator. All the works featured in the exhibition are from the Bank of America Collection, one of the oldest corporate art collections in the world. A sweeping survey of American art at the turn of the 20th century, American Visions, 1870–1940: Works from the Bank of America Collection traces the emergence of a truly American style of painting by concentrating on regional artists’ colonies established across the United States during this period. The exhibition features works by a diverse group of over 70 artists including Childe Hassam, Thomas Moran, John Sloan, Ernest Lawson, George Inness, Daniel Garber, George Bellows, Lila Cabot Perry, and Guy Carleton Wiggins.

Zoongoro Bailongo: Son Jarocho Tales - Workshop with Zenen Zeferino & Julia del Palacio

Sponsored by Montclair Public Library. 50 S. Fullerton Ave, Montclair, NJ 07042. 2pm. Enjoy a unique cultural journey to the vibrant tradition of Mexico's son jarocho - a regional folk musical style from Veracruz which evolved over the last two-and-a-half centuries. Based on the Spanish-language Children's book Zoongoro Bailongo by Mexican musician and poet Zenen Zeferino, this bilingual workshop is geared toward children ages 6-12 who are learning Spanish, come from a Spanish-speaking background, or speak Spanish at home. Zoongoro Bailongo narrates life in the fictional town of Cienega Grande, where animals turn into musical instruments of the son jarocho tradition and tell their story through music and dance. This interactive workshop, where kids participate by singing along, making animal sounds and learning to dance son jarocho songs, shows children the importance of linking contemporary modes of communication with more traditional forms of storytelling, including oral histories and musical narration. Zoongoro Bailongo also emphasizes the importance of taking care of our environment and understanding and respecting animal life. Zenen Zeferino, currently touring with New York's Radio Jarocho, is a gifted jarana player, poet, singer, and songwriter who promotes the fandango tradition and poetic improvisation. Julia del Palacio is a dancer of traditional son jarocho music, holds a PhD in Latin American History from Columbia University, and is a co-founder of Radio Jarocho, which has championed son jarocho and the fandango tradition since 2005. Books will be available for purchase at the workshop. Montclair Public Library Registration required* Registration begins Monday, April 18: 973-744-0500 ext. 2236, or: http://www.montclairlibrary.org/events-calendar/kids-family-events/ *(Preference given to Montclair Library Cardholders) Reservations / registration required.
