"Portals/Unfolding the Future" Winter Art Exhibition at Stuart
Works by local artists' collective Art + 10

The winter gallery exhibition in Stuart's Considine Gallery will include the works by the local artists' collective Art + 10. "Portals/Unfolding the Future" invites viewers to think about their local and global community and feel inspired to dream of a new world. The artists of Art + 10 created paintings, drawings, and photographs that represent a cultural fusion of past, present and future. The artists expressed their ideas through abstract compositions, humor, architecture, environmental plans, and portals into the future.

The public is invited for an Opening Reception on
Friday, January 11, 2019 from 5:30 - 7:30 PM
And Gallery Talk with the artists on Tuesday, January 16, 1-2 PM

The public is invited to view the exhibit on display at Stuart's Considine Gallery, from January 11 through March 8, 2019. The gallery is open from 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday, when school is in session. All the artwork is on sale, and a percentage will go back to school programming.

"We seek to bring artwork to Stuart that can have an impact in the way students learn and open a dialog about the future of the world," commented Lower School Art Teacher and Gallery Director Andres Duque. "If our girls can see aspects of design solutions to problems and environmental ideas that can be implemented in the future, this will open their minds and influence their own work as leaders."
