About the Exhibition

Artists Catherine Carter and Robert Collins—long-time, celebrated Danforth Art faculty members, and professional colleagues—speak the same artistic language.  Come view recent paintings by two artists who both favor a stark black-and-white palette and abstract shapes defined by strong lines. Carter’s calligraphy–inspired loops stretch across the canvas, while Collins’ solid, layered forms carve into deep space.

Robert Collins is an abstract and figure painting instructor at Danforth Art and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, who studied at Boston University with Philip Guston and has exhibited extensively in New England.

Carter is teaching watercolor workshops this winter at Danforth Art, and has extensive previous professional experience teaching at Framingham State University and the Worcester Art Museum in addition to Danforth Art.

The two have worked in the same studios at Danforth Art for over ten years, and co-curated an exhibition of Small Works by students in the School Gallery in 2013. For additional information please see Catherine Carter or Robert Collins, on the faculty page.

Reception

Thursday, March 13, 6–8pm


About the Exhibition

Danforth Art School Gallery is pleased to present the work of six Danforth Art students who are each exhibiting a series of three to eight works created in response to the class, Painting a Series. Under the direction of artist and instructor Nan Hass Feldman, students were directed to choose a theme, a medium or mediums, and a technique to focus on to develop a cohesive body of work—one where each idea could evolve and inform the works that followed. Many of these ideas were inspired by museum visits, art historical references, demonstrations, and individual and group critiques.

Exhibiting artists are: Sandra Simoes, Lucille Nava, Marjorie Anderson, Shannon Astolfi, Judy Schneider, and Tom Sullivan.

On the Starting Blocks

Teen Docent Collaborative Wall Hanging
with artist Merill Comeau

On the Starting Blocks - Teen Docent Collaborative Wall Hanging with artist Merill Comeau - 2013

On The Starting Blocks, Danforth Art Teen Docent Collaborative Wall Hanging with artist Merill Comeau, 2013

January 8–February 17, 2014


About the Exhibit

On the Starting Blocks is a collaborative piece created by exhibiting artist Merill Comeau and the teens in the Danforth Teen Docent training program during the summer of 2013. Currently on view in the Museum’s Swartz Gallery, Comeau’s work explores both the creation of a beautiful Garden of Eden of tomorrow from the refuse of today and the seductive moment between light and dark. In preparation for the teens to speak knowledgably about this work, Comeau led the group through her process of brainstorming ideas, creating materials, and creating a piece of art.

The process: The group first brainstormed a list of times they metaphorically hover between darkness and light. Examples included: when juggling workload of AP classes, at the start of race when standing on the starting blocks, and when driving a car. Next, the Teen Docents came up with colors representing their feelings at those moments. Comeau taught the group her techniques of creating materials including deconstructing discarded garments to create yardage, applying paint to fabric, and block printing patterns. To create the final piece, teens assisted Comeau in laying out the materials the group created into an abstracted landscape. After Comeau completed sewing the construction, the teens had an opportunity to embellish the resulting mural with thread.

Also on view are cloth samples and photos showing the processes of direct painting, block printing, resist and Thermofax screen printing.

About the Artists

Danforth Art Teen Docents: Mary Abrahamyan, Rebecca Andrews, Emily Collins, Annie Dumas, Lindsey Hart, Eryn Hopper, Thomas Leacu, Jack O’Connor, Julia Pearson, Stephanie Van Riet, Andrea Wong, Alexander Yakovlev Loga.

Merrill Comeau’s exhibition, Fragments of Eden, is on display in the museum’s main galleries, November 17, 2013–February 23, 2014.

About the Exhibit

George Nick

George Nick

On view in the Danforth Art School Gallery are over seventy paintings created by fifteen teachers and artists, who recently revisited value, color, paint handling, and composition in a painting seminar taught by renowned painter and master teacher George Nick. In a thirteen-week class, Nick distilled key problems he’s explored during his past fifty years of teaching. It was a unique opportunity for participating artists to work with a renowned teacher and partake in the tradition of William Merritt Chase, Charles W. Hawthorne, and Edwin Dickinson.

Students’ independent responses to Nick’s assignments, done from observation, were critiqued each week in Nick’s Concord, MA, studio. All participants saw their work, and the works of their colleagues, transform over the course of this theoretical, practical and creative master class.

George Nick's art is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Hirshhorn Museum; the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.; Danforth Art; and many public and private collections. He has taught at Massachusetts College of Art and Design for over thirty years.

Nick’s work is on view in a group show, April 7 - May 24, 2013, in the museum galleries of Danforth Art.

Cathleen Bradley - Mum’s the Word
Cathleen Bradley, Mum’s the Word
Mixed Media

CATHLEEN EVETTE BRADLEY : Divergent Thinking
November 8 – December 15, 2012

Reception  November 18, 2 – 4pm

Divergent thinking defines Cathleen E. Bradley’s mixed media art. It’s her natural inclination to be curious, try new techniques and think of different ways to use objects. Each composition on view holds two common threads: the physicality exerted in the process and the exploratory road-trip to visualize it. Discarded objects and vintage graphics and text are given a second life in her constructions and assemblages.

Cathleen Bradley is part of the Danforth Art School community, most recently working with instructor Louise Melton. Her work has been exhibited in the Danforth juried exhibitions, Off the Wall and Community of Artists. She brought her west coast east 21 years ago and can be reached at studiocb.blogspot.com.

KATHERINE MILLER : Meditations
September 9 – October 28, 2012

Closing Reception  Sunday, October 28, 2 – 4pm

Meet Katherine Miller at the Danforth’s Free Fall Family Day
September 9, 1 – 4pm

This body of work is Katherine Downey Miller’s meditation on internal, natural energy using imagery, remnants of imagery or color choice based on nature and landscape.

“I paint because it is the most intuitive and effective form of communication for me. When my mind is in a creative, uninterrupted intellectual flow, I feel at peace, and am drawn to the pure organic quality of paint, to the feeling of the paint, and to its many colors. I make decisions about imagery by considering the honesty and purity of color and try to create paintings that capture visual and emotional moments. I create composition upon composition, movement upon movement and transparencies. I turn paintings in different directions to create a new abstract language to work from. Building up, constantly reworking, reorganizing - the work becomes an investigation of form and content.”

Katherine currently teaches studio classes in watercolor and landscape painting at the Danforth’s Art School. She has exhibited her work in Massachusetts, New York and Italy, and is represented by Galatea Fine Arts in Boston, MA. See her faculty bio for more information.

Opening Reception Saturday, October 14, 2006, 3 - 5 p.m.

Carol Blackwell

Lost in Translation, Box Assemblage

The box assemblages are part of an ongoing series that has engaged the artist over many years and reflect an abiding interest in the mystery of commonplace objects whose identity and meaning are transformed by their enclosure in contained space.  Blackwell, a teacher at the Danforth Museum School, will be teaching two classes during the winter 2007 semester:  Collage in the 21st Century and Assemblage: Art of the Found Object.

PEGGY McCLURE
Natural Forces
September 5 - September 30, 2006
Opening Reception Sunday, September 10, 2006, 1 - 3 p.m.

Peggy McClure

Storm, mixed media

Artist's Statement “In a process that mimics the natural forces of weathering and erosion, Peggy McClure covers her images with layers that conceal, destroy, and become something new. She paints over photographs or handwritten text. Pieces of images and text work their way in; paint is scraped away in places to reveal the underlying image. And, as with the covering and uncovering by natural forces, bits and pieces float to the top.”
