Jeff Muhs:

The Uncanny Valley

Winner of the 2018 Artist Members Exhibition

October 30, 2021-January 2, 2022

As a local multidisciplinary artist, Jeff Muhs has worked in a variety of mediums and genres and this exhibition will feature both his sculptural works as well as his paintings. In 2018, Muhs participated in Guild Hall’s annual Artist Members Exhibition where he received the Top Honors award for his concrete sculpture Callipyge, selected by Connie Choi, Associate Curator at The Studio Museum in Harlem. The prize for the recipient of the top honor is a solo exhibition at Guild Hall.

The Uncanny Valley originates from a sculptural process the artist calls “Dynamic Free Casting.” By discovering this method, the artist has developed new means or forming concrete, all while embracing its inherent fluidity and weight.

Jeff Muhs: The Uncanny Valley will be on view in the Spiga Gallery.

Neo–Tile Club: Community Exhibition

an Installation by 2021 Guild Hall Community Artist-In-Residence, Scott Bluedorn

October 30, 2021-January 2, 2022

The Tile Club was founded in 1872 by a group of artists in New York City who met regularly to paint on tile – a popular surface of the coinciding decorative arts movement. Scott Bluedorn has focused his 2021 Guild Hall Community Artist-in-Residence project on the history, practice, and revitalization of the club, whose original members included William Merritt Chase, Winslow Homer, and architect Stanford White, to name a few. Throughout the 2021 summer season, Scott led 6 free workshops, during which ceramic tiles were given to participants along with a demo and discussion of the history of the Tile Club. Participants were asked to donate at least one completed tile to be included in this installation in the Education Corridor.
