ABOUT THE JUROR:
Margaret O’Reilly is the Curator of Fine Art at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton. Ms. O’Reilly joined the State Museum staff in 1988, and took on the curatorial role in 1997. At the State Museum, she has organized over 90 exhibitions including a complete re-installation of the Museum’s art collection – American Perspectives: The Fine Art Collection; the critically well-received exhibitions, Aljira, Dream & Reality (2014), Dahlia Elsayed: Hither and Yon (2013-14), Jon Naar: Signature Photography (2013), Reality & Artifice – New Jersey Arts Annual: Fine Art (2010), Transcendent: Toshiko Takaezu in the State Museum Collection (2009-10), Women’s Works (2002), and Mel Leipzig: A Retrospective (1998); as well as Vision & Voice: Artists in Dialogue with Contemporary Poetry (2005), and many New Jersey Artist Series exhibitions. Ms. O’Reilly received her MA in painting from Kean University, and her work has been included in numerous exhibitions in the region. Her research and exhibition interests echo those found in her own creative output and include issues of chance, identity and mortality, among others, while the formal qualities of particular interest are density, repetition and serial structure.
