I am excited to announce that one of my pieces from Father and Mother has been acquired by the Danforth Art Museum for their permanent collection. It will be reinstalled as part of their winter exhibition Facial Expressions.

Members Only Reception: Saturday, November 22, 6-8pm
Danforth Art is pleased to present a new installation of works from the Permanent Collection, the second part of our year-long exploration of The Expressive Voice. The exhibition Facial Expressions highlights the collection’s strengths in portraiture, considering the numerous ways artists have used the figure to represent, explore, and challenge identity. Works on view throughout the galleries address portraiture’s changing conventions in New England from the 19th century to the present day, with pieces representing a range in style and technique from Gilbert Stuart to Boston Expressionism to contemporary photography. One can trace the history of American Art through the ways the figure is depicted—in paintings, photographs, prints, and sculpture—and both traditional and more unconventional approaches to the portrait are evident in this exhibition, which also includes exciting new acquisitions.
