In “Dream Refuge,” Judy Shintani draws on her personal experience to create an installation of drawings of children sleeping on mattresses, reminiscent of the many children forcibly removed from their homes and imprisoned in deplorable conditions. Her art focuses on remembrance, connection, and storytelling.

Come to the Triton tomorrow at 12PM for a Brown Bag Lunch with Judy Shintani. Hear more about how she produces installations to generate visual stories that bring critical issues to light.

It’s all in the details.

Come see Deborah Oropallo’s “Flight” on view at the Triton Museum of Art now. “Flight” is showing at the Triton until January 26, 2020.

Oropallo presents her new works as “journalism in visual form,” and her compositions bear witness to global traumas that are all-too-often underreported, including oil spills and mass fires, as well as acts of human violence. By sourcing images from online news outlets, she draws attention to critical events that most people will never see, and which are elided from mainstream reportage.

10/22/2019

Tomorrow at noon, pack a lunch and come to the Triton Museum for a Brown Bag Lunch with Artist and Educator Glen Rogers. She will be discussing her new book “Symbols of the Spirit: A Meditative Journey Through Art.”
.
In her book Glen takes us on a journey to explore eight iconic symbols that appear universally in early civilizations. She introduces archetypes—the bird, the circle, the lotus, the moon, the seed, the spiral, the vessel, and the vesica piscis—delving into both their meanings, their metaphors and their connection to the spiritual and feminine realm. Glen engages us with her unique style of art (created over a 25 year period) to illustrate each chapter, shares her personal stories and includes a guided meditation for each symbol.
.
Glen Rogers is an internationally exhibited artist/educator whose work includes painting, prints and public sculpture. Her works has been exhibited in and is part of the permanent collection at the The Triton Museum of Art. She lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 25 years before relocating to Mexico in 2000.

Date: Wednesday, October 23, 2019
Time: 12pm – 12:45pm
Location: Triton Museum of Art

"Severed at the neck, a giant's head hangs from the ceiling in mid-air. His eyes are closed; his lips slightly parted. This is the white plaster face of a god in repose. He might be contemplating his next act of creation."

Read what Jeffrey Edalatpour has to say about our new exhibition! Hector Dionicio Mendoza's "White Wilderness/Maleza Blanca" is now showing at the Triton until November 3, 2019.

Severed at the neck, a giant's head hangs from the ceiling in mid-air. His eyes are closed; his lips slightly parted. This is the white plaster face of a god in repose. He might be contemplating his next act of creation.

Among the ancient Greeks, the nine Muses held a special status as the goddesses responsible for inspiring artists, poets, and musicians. Throughout history artists have often found their own muses, finding in them the inspiration for some of their greatest works. You probably recognize their faces, but do you know their stories?
.
Please join us Monday, September 9th, from 8am to 9:15am at the Triton Museum of Art, as our resident art historian, Deputy Director Preston Metcalf, introduce us to nine muses of famous artists, and shares what made them so influential in these artists’ lives. You know Botticelli, Picasso, Rembrandt, Dali, and others. Now meet the muses that inform their works.
.
Donuts will be provided 🍩🍩🍩

Time: September 9th, 8AM-9:15AM
Location: Triton Museum of Art, Santa Clara
Admission: Free for members, $5 General
