Pictured is one of the works to be featured as part of the exhibition “Invertebrates & Architecture: Works by Julian Montague,” which opens Friday, Oct. 19 at the Cathy and Jesse Marion Art Gallery at SUNY Fredonia.
He has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally. His solo exhibition in the Buffalo area have included "Insect Drawings" (2009) and "Other Orders" (2008) at the Albright-Knox Collector's Gallery, "Site Study: Scajaquada Creek" (2006) at the Burchfield Penney Arts Center and "The Stray Shopping Cart: An Illustrated System of Identification" at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center.
"'Invertebrates & Architecture' features work from Julian Montague's ongoing project, "Secondary Occupants/Collected & Observed'," said Art Gallery Director Tina Hastings. "Using a number of different mediums, Montague's work explores the relationship between animals and the built environment. At the center of the project is an unnamed fictional author/investigator who appears to be obsessed with the way that animals occupy architectural structures."
The gallery hours are 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 2 to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday. Both the reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public.
