We have been alerted by a number of our artist members and friends in the art community regionally that some of our notices for the submission period for the Danforth Art Annual were not received. We believe this was caused by a technical glitch in our email service, and are looking into the error. In response to this situation, we are reopening the submission period for a limited time, extending it one more week to close on FRIDAY, MAY 6 at 12 midnight. We will again notify our members via Outlook, Mailchimp, on our website here, and on social media. We appreciate your assistance in spreading the word to any parties that you believe were affected, so they may submit their work now. Thank you for your understanding.
Develop foundational skills for the first time, improve your technique, or broaden your creative skill-set in semester-long classes at Danforth Art that offer in-depth exploration in a variety of media. Through exercises that promote dedicated practice, and under the guidance of knowledgeable instructors, our students are both supported and challenged along their creative path. Classes starting this April include preparatory classes like Beginner Drawing, Art for Non-Artists, and The Power of Composition, and more advanced topics like Watercolor Landscapes and Explore the Masters.
Throughout art history, still lifes have represented both life and death. In Beautiful Decay, an exhibition of works from the Permanent Collection accompanied by installations by three contemporary artists, opening this spring, paintings, drawings, photographs, and mixed media installation represent the meticulous arrangement and carefully rendered detail of the tradition’s subjects, and the dichotomy of the tradition’s themes. Featured contemporary artists whose works redefine still life are Sarah Meyers Brent, Steven Duede, and David Weinberg. Also on view this spring is Edward Hagedorn: Volcanoes, Riots, Wrecks, and Nudes.
