Opening Reception: Saturday, November 17, 3-5pm
This show is a celebration of artists who teach grades K-12. We often spend so much time and energy motivating and helping our students create, that we risk neglecting our own craft. Our jobs require us to assume various roles–nurturer, parent, and coach–and achieve a myriad of goals–to inspire, teach technique and regulate students of varying emotional, social, and developmental levels. We do all of this because it is important work, but in our field, teaching others often overshadows our own artistic development. This show is a reminder to ourselves and to others that the reason we teach is because we value the creative process. In order to support our students we must devote time to our own artistic practice. Our teaching feeds our art making and our art making feeds our teaching. This symbiotic relationship allows us to lead by example and helps us seek the difficult balance between giving to others through teaching and giving to our own work as artists.

Inspired Views gathers together more than fifty art educators from New England and beyond in celebration of their commitment and dedication to arts eduction. Recognizing the many working artists who inspire and mentor our young people, "Inspired Views," brings artist teachers together and provides an opportunity for these professionals to show their work at the Montserrat Gallery. The art teachers in the show represent over forty K-12 public and independent schools, as well as art educators working at the college level.
This exhibit coincides with the Beverly Main Street Arts Fest. Come to Beverly this weekend and enjoy both celebrations!
Seven of my Paper Quilts have been hanging on the bright orange walls at Darwin's for the past year. It's unreal what a whirlwind the past year has been. I installed the work last June, so it's been up for almost a year. I am grateful for the opportunity I've had to show my work at Darwin's and have enjoyed meeting up with friends at their third Thursday wine nights, for delicious sandwiches, to buy picnic supplies or for a cup of coffee late at night. I've also enjoyed receiving surprised texts from friends who have stumbled on my work when visiting the cafe.
The night that I went to the cafe to take down my work, one of the baristas that was working there said, "Wow. It's the end of an era" and smiled. While I'm also a bit melancholy that the work is coming down, I am focused on the fact that endings create space. Sometimes the space creates new opportunities immediately and sometimes the space is slower, providing time to sit quietly and reflect. I am excited to bring the work back home, to look at it with fresh eyes and to submit pieces to new shows; giving them the freedom to live in other places.
