Tenacre Art Gallery
The mission of the Tenacre Art Gallery (TAG) is to inspire, enrich and fuel the creative spirit of our students, staff and parents by presenting thought-provoking artwork and welcoming exceptional artists to the Tenacre Community. TAG hosted its first exhibition in the spring of 2007. When artists exhibit their work at Tenacre, they also agree to work with students in art class. This has been a wonderful opportunity for Tenacre students, who have learned from painters, photographers, illustrators and other artists.
Currently Exhibited in TAG: Denise Driscoll
Artist Denise Driscoll's work will be exhibited in the Tenacre Art Gallery until February 21. On January 11, she is hosting the morning assembly for the student body. Later that morning, she will work with second and third graders in their art classes.

Artist Statement
Whether working alone or collaborating with others, I contemplate the invisible energies and patterns that shape our lives. Inspired by the similarities between photographs of neurons, cities seen from airplane windows, and maps of the Internet, my mixed media paintings and objects investigate the interconnectedness of all things, our capacity to perceive these connections, and the fleeting quality of this awareness.

(MFA in Visual Art 2007, The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University)
Driscoll’s collaborations have taken place at Dover-Sherborn Middle School, Dana Hall, Holliston High School, Babson College, and Lesley University.
