Montclair’s 73 See Gallery is showing Fluid Metamorphosis.

Monika’s Smerdel’s paintings are realized as she meanders between her inner world latent with personal thoughts, feelings and dreams and the external environment rich with visual stimulus (real and imagined) where color and light, texture and sound invade her day-to-day existence. Organic in feeling and approach, each layer of paint acts as a unique cell that finds presence in attaching to the fluidity that came before it.

Fluid Metamorphosis runs through July 27, 2014. For more information visit 73 See Gallery. Hours are noon to 6pm daily or by appointment; closed Mondays. 973-746-8737.

  1. A great show of work in a great gallery. Montclair should support this place more.

    We need places like 73See…and not more Starbucks!
