Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University,
Hak Vogrin: A Retrospective
features the work of Hak Vogrin, a largely self-taught painter linked to both outsider art and twentieth-century mainstream art.
This exhibition tracks the evolution of Vogrin’s work, showing delicate, thoughtful drawings, ironic cartoons, as well as expressive paintings condemning the ills of American society. Vogrin’s work critiques issues such as national hypocrisy, consumerism, environmental issues, and the mistreatment of women and minorities. Despite his death in 2009, Vogrin remains an active critical voice of reason responding to persisting contemporary problems through his artwork.
