Marc D'Agusto: Forgotten Place
January 31 - July 24, 2013
Orbit I Gallery
Marc D'Agusto's multilayered work delves into ideas of transformation, renewal, and the passing of time.  Using rust, cracks, and fissures in the surface of his work, D'Agusto draws attention to the past while utilizing images of the human body, architectural forms, and space to suggest rebirth and regeneration.

Authors & Artists: 
Portraits by Bonnie Gloris
January 31 - July 24, 2013
Pequod Deck
"Authors & Artists" is an ongoing series of portraits in which Bonnie Gloris mixes realistic portraiture with more ambiguous elements to delve into the personalities of her subjects, inviting viewers to form their own conclusions and decipher the works line by line.  The portraits are small in scale and as intimate as family photographs, their kitschy frames interacting with their subjects' elevated fame and stature.
Ben Georgia,

Primary Essences: Ben Georgia
January 31 - June 4, 2013
Orbit II Gallery
For painter Ben Georgia, abstraction offers the possibility of a fresh mode of communication.  Georgia seeks a language that surpasses representation and the fleeting concerns of the moment, reaching towards expressing the emotional depths of human experience.
Janice McDonnell,

Janice McDonnell: 
The Death Penalty Ladies Society
January 31 - July 24, 2013
Criminal Justice Gallery
McDonnell writes: "Since the death penalty was reinstated in this country in 1976 twelve women have been executed... I've recast these women in the role of socialites; portraying them in a new, genteel light, elevating their status in our society, and confronting the treatment of the privileged in today's world... And while not condoing their acts of violence, I question our double standard on how we as a society judge its memebers."
Soma, Trickster & Myself
David D. Oquendo, "Soma, Trickster & Myself", 2012, acrylic, 119"x165", courtesy of the artist
Soma, Trickster &  Myself:
David D. Oquendo
September 4, 2012 - July 24, 2013
Messier Gallery
David D. Oquendo leads his audience into a world populated with characters of indefinite human-animal-plant-fungus origin, each signifying a facet of Oqueno's exploration of religion, culture, and personal growth.  The work rings with pop culture and commercial imagery, yet engages questions that have remained relevant throughout human history.

Paul Robeson Galleries at Rutgers University-Newark

Our Mission

The Paul Robeson Galleries presents critically engaging exhibitions, public events and educational programs to Rutgers University and Greater Newark audiences.  It is in the spirit of Paul Robeson himself that the gallery network is dedicated to an urban mission with an activist approach to educational and exhibitions programming.  This commitment includes organizing exhibitions and public programs on local, regional, and international contemporary art and culture, as well as developing civic partnerships through community outreach programs.  Our aim is to initiate cross-disciplinary and civic dialogues as ways of strengthening bonds between art, education, and democracy.  Our exhibitions, programs, and events are always free and open to the public.
