Skewed Perspective, an exhibition by Buffalo artist Anne Muntges, opens January 12 in the Center Gallery on JCC’s Cattaraugus County Campus in Olean.

A public reception, during which Ms. Muntges will discuss her work, will be held from 6-8 p.m. on January 16 in the gallery, which is located on the second floor of College Center. The exhibition is on display until February 5.

A life-size apartment interior is the foundation of the exhibition. Every surface of the installation is painted white and covered by the artist with thousands of hand-drawn lines woven into complex crosshatch patterns.

“Muntges' work poetically disrupts and re-orders the domestic interior with the aim of making us more conscious of the spaces we inhabit,” notes gallery director Patricia Briggs, who will lead a discussion during a brownbag lunch at noon on January 26 in the gallery.

Muntges makes highly detailed drawings, prints, and installation art based on concepts of the home. She earned a bachelor’s degree at the Kansas City Art Institute and a master’s degree at the University at Buffalo. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Chicago, Buffalo, and Canada.
