ArtBeat: Uncharted @ The University Art Museum at UAlbany

Newly opened at The University Art Museum , “Uncharted” showcases 10 artists, working in a broad variety of media, illustrating themes of travel, exploration and discovery.

The exhibition is dwarfed by David Herbert’s “Holiday,” a galleon-like wooden sculpture modeled loosely on the U.S.S. Constitution and home to a small army of paper Scrooge McDucks.

Among our favorite works, Anna Conway’s disquieting, painstakingly rendered oils and Matt Leines’ mythic warriors, colorful yet plaintive.

The show was curated by Janet Riker and Corinna Ripps Schaming who note that the artists “propose an imagined world of discovery and adventure that often parallels the artistic process itself.” Exploring the subject of exploration, as it were.
