Artist Michael Mut Exhibit's "Scrapings"

Teaneck, NJ (August 25, 2005) — In the art exhibit “Scrapings,” the acrylic-on-canvas works of artist Michael Mut will be shown at the Edward Williams Gallery on the Metropolitan Campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University from August 31 until September 30, 2005.

Mut’s spontaneous, explosive paintings exude the artist’s love of recycling old materials and creating new artistic statements from experience. From cleaning out buckets of old paint, Mut was inspired by the scrapings he made. These scrapings offered variant hues of color, diverse forms and shapes with texture —in essence, a new product was formed by the artist to continue to create something new.

The artist has been painting for at least two decades and has had several solo and group exhibitions. He has a permanent commissioned outdoor installation in Savannah, GA. Mut studied at the Art Students League, International Center of Photography, Landmark Education and The Tobe-Coburn School of Fashion Design in New York City.

Along with Mut’s “Scrapings,” he recently created an exciting series of floor art treatments, which will be exhibited in the New York area in the near future.

The Gallery in Edward Williams Hall at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus is located at 150 Kotte Place, Hackensack. The Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m. and Saturday 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information call 201-692-2449.
