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 for forming concrete, all while embracing its inherent fluidity and weight.
