Current Exhibition

Tom Nussbaum: Heads and Tales

March 31 - May 10, 2014

Reception and Gallery Talk

April 16, 2014

Heads and Tales is an exhibition of selected studio work from the last sixteen years representing the progression in Nussbaum's practice that moves between the representational and the abstract.

His process of self-discovery and mining of images that have personal and psychological meaning are motivations for the leitmotifs developed in his drawings and found in his animations, cut paper, and sculpture works.

His distinctive color palette, and his explorations of form, structure, and pattern unified his work as it progressed from the figurative to the abstract. In a variety of work that is seemingly disparate in style, Nussbaum locates common attributes to embody a narrative framework.

This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. The Rowan University Art Gallery is the recipient of a Citation of Excellence award from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
