On Tuesday, November 17, students, staff, and members of the community were delighted to attend the opening of the Art @ Ross Faculty Exhibition in the Ross Gallery at the Upper School. The show features paintings, prints, photographs, and mixed-media works by Ross teaching faculty and associates, including Ned Smyth, Jennifer Cross, Jon Mulhern, Alexis Martino, Christina Schlesinger, Brianna Ashe, Kevin Pomerleau, and Christopher Engel.
Ross School, renowned for its art-infused curriculum, is proud to have professional and emerging artists as members of the teaching staff. Several students in their first year at Ross attended the opening and were impressed to learn that many of their teachers and mentors are successful artists with international recognition.
“It is a pleasure to share our work and experience with the students,” said Jennifer Cross, dean of Visual Arts. “We hope by seeing the diversity of the work on display and learning more about the backgrounds of their teachers, students can be inspired in their own creative endeavors.”
The following works of art will be on display in the Ross Gallery through December 16.
