Art at FIAF Montclair

Still Life by Maja Usmiani

Jan 26–Feb 22, 2018

Discover the vibrant and breathtaking still life paintings and exquisitely crafted jewelry of Montclair artist Maja Usmiani.

Maja Usmiani has a passion for color and composition. Citing the works of Giorgio Morandi as an influence, she captures beauty and peacefulness in still life painting.

Usmiani's strong love for color led her to experiment with crafting necklaces utilizing different stones, crystals and glass pearls. She combines various pieces to create compositions evoking the sunset of her native city of Zadar.

In addition to her paintings, some of her jewelry creations will also be displayed in the exhibition and be available for sale.
