The culminating show of the Nesto Gallery year,Time Beyond Teaching, highlights the creative breadth and depth of many practicing artists who are also Milton Academy faculty: recently-retired, current, and soon-to-start. The exhibit, which opened on May 2, and extends through Reunion Weekend in June, celebrates artists with long Milton histories and familiar names. Anne Neely and Gordon Chase have works on display. In addition, the exhibit includes diverse works from Upper School visual arts faculty Ian Torney ’82, Bryan Cheney, Paul Menneg, Maggie Stark, Emilie Stark-Menneg ’02 and Julia von Metzsch ’03, as well as work by Jennifer Hughes, who will join the visual arts department in the fall. Pam Walker and Sandy Butler of K-8 are among the artists in the exhibition as well as Shane Fuller (performing arts department) and Larry Pollans (history department). Shane teaches film courses to visual arts students and Larry will direct the Nesto Gallery program next year.
The Nesto exhibit is an exciting and thoughtful compilation of paintings, drawings, prints, film, photographs, sculpture and ceramics. Don’t miss the opportunity to witness artistic diversity with local roots.
