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.

Current TAG artist: John Judge

Tenacre welcomes artist John Judge to the TAG gallery. Over the past 25 years, John has exhibited his work in Boston, New York, Chicago, and elsewhere throughout the country. For the last 10 years, he has taught after-school art classes at his studio in Needham. John has an MFA in painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as a BFA in painting from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and a BA in American history from Columbia University. He lives in Needham with his wife, two teenaged children, and their dog, Chester, whose portrait hangs in this exhibition.

John's art will be exhibited at Tenacre until mid-March.
