    - on view in the School Gallery through June 5, is a showcase of contemporary work created by our talented students. It is a celebration of the formation of an artist, and the joy and practice of art-making. From children’s drawings to artworks created by art teachers in our professional development courses, the student exhibition includes a broad range of drawings, paintings, watercolors, ceramics and sculptures, including landscapes, still lifes, abstractions and figurative artworks. Our instructors assisted students in choosing artworks that represent their best studio efforts.

    “Part of the learning process for art students includes exhibiting their artwork. They need to step back and see their work in a professional way – not on an easel but on the wall or on a pedestal as a finished piece of art," says Patricia Walker, Director, Art School. "For some students this is the first time they have been in an exhibition, and it is wonderful to experience their excitement of seeing their newly framed work on the walls, intermixed with the work of intermediate and advanced students who take multiple classes, and professional artists who are also teachers. The exhibition represents hours and hours of instruction and creative exploration by those learning to see the world in new ways.”

    The Danforth Art community is invited to join us for a closing reception for the 2016 Student Exhibition on Sunday, June 5 from 4-5 pm. The School Gallery is open during School Office hours and is accessible via the side doors on Lexington or Pearl Street .The handicapped accessible elevator entrance is at 140 Pearl Street at the red door.

    - Beautiful Decay

    Sunday, March 6—Sunday, June 5, 2016

    More than a bowl of fruit or a vase of flowers, a still life conveys ideas that go beyond the arrangement of objects and the temporal moment that is captured. Still life compositions represent our thoughts on mortality, the passage of time, our organic nature, or connections to ourselves, family, and the world around us.

    Beautiful Decay includes two galleries of works from the Museum’s permanent collection, accompanied by installations from three contemporary artists, Sarah Meyers Brent, Steven Duede, and David Weinberg. Through paintings, drawings, photographs, and mixed media installation, the exhibition invites viewers to expand their definition to explore both the traditional and untraditional still life.

    Museum admission $11 adults, $9 seniors, $8 students, under age 17 free

    Open Wed \ Sun 12-5pm, Thu 12-8:30pm, Fri \ Sat 10am-5pm

    - Beautiful Decay

    Sunday, March 6—Sunday, June 5, 2016

    More than a bowl of fruit or a vase of flowers, a still life conveys ideas that go beyond the arrangement of objects and the temporal moment that is captured. Still life compositions represent our thoughts on mortality, the passage of time, our organic nature, or connections to ourselves, family, and the world around us.

    Beautiful Decay includes two galleries of works from the Museum’s permanent collection, accompanied by installations from three contemporary artists, Sarah Meyers Brent, Steven Duede, and David Weinberg. Through paintings, drawings, photographs, and mixed media installation, the exhibition invites viewers to expand their definition to explore both the traditional and untraditional still life.

    Museum admission $11 adults, $9 seniors, $8 students, under age 17 free

    Open Wed \ Sun 12-5pm, Thu 12-8:30pm, Fri \ Sat 10am-5pm
