Current Exhibitions

OCT 2 - JAN 2 | Sentido: New Paintings by Bob Nugent


Sentido: New Paintings by Bob Nugent October 2, 2021 - January 2, 2022 Reception: Saturday, October 2, 1:00-4:00 p.m. ––––––––––– Every year Bob Nugent travels to the jungles of Brazil, to find imagery and inspiration for his work. Within these seemingly abstracted visions are exquisite depictions of the vibrancy of this fast disappearing of the terrain. This exhibition will be accompanied by a musical score composed by Richard Derwingson and orchestrated by Scot Derwingson-Peacock (all music pre-recorded).




SEPT 18 - JAN 16 | Robert-Jean Ray: Seasons of Change


Robert-Jean Ray September 18, 2021 - January 16, 2022 Reception: Saturday, October 2, 1:00-4:00 p.m. ––––––––––– The small-scale collage and paintings of Robert-Jean Ray reflect the artist’s response to life in an urbanized existence, in his case, the inner-city of Sacramento as experienced by a bi-racial/multi-cultural male of European and African lineage. The intimate size of the works requires the viewer to view them up close, further drawing them into the vision of the artist.




SEPT 18 - JAN 16 | Dora Duan, Unsettled and Miles Away


Dora Duan An Exhibition in Two Parts: Unsettled and Miles Away September 18, 2021 - January 16, 2022 Reception: Saturday, October 2, 1:00-4:00 p.m. ––––––––––– Dora Duan is an award winning fine art photographer. She grew up in China, and now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Duan started her career in California as a software engineer. During the time she worked in San Francisco, her office was across the street of Academy of Art University campus, she often dreamed about taking the adventure to art school someday, as her passion in photography traces back to her childhood. Duan started a photography studio in 2012, and then pursued a MFA degree at Academy of Art University, San Francisco. Duan’s fine art work emphasizes the emotional content within her and creates photographs that share her personal experience on a psychological level. Her work evokes emotional connections with her viewers by using minimal visual elements and aesthetic aspects.
Check out what the the largest Chinese newspaper in United States, World Journal, has been saying about her work!

OCT 2 - NOV 28 | Breaking Free Sculpture Exhibition


Breaking Free Sculpture Exhibition sponsored by the Santa Clara Cultural Commission October 2 - November 28, 2021 Reception: Saturday, October 2, 1:00-4:00 p.m.
Earlier this year the City of Santa Clara held its sculpture completion, the theme of which was Breaking Free. This year’s competition was unlike all previous, given the restrictions and protocols resulting from COVID-19, which made a full public exhibition of the selected works. The Triton Museum of Art was pleased to have been able to somewhat counter those restrictions by producing a Pocket Exhibition video.
In a further effort to assist the Santa Clara Cultural Commission, in light of the many changes in County mandated public access, The Triton Museum of Art is pleased to showcase the three award winning works by Jennifer Lay, Oleg Lobykin, and Elizabeth Jimenez Montelongo, from October 2 through November 28, 2021. Congratulations to all!
