Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts
A community of artists and students exhibit work and reflect on a year of creative exploration and growth.
On Sunday, June 10, a group of over 100 Eliot School faculty members and students will exhibit work produced in or inspired by classes at the schoolhouse at 24 Eliot Street, and in the Eliot School’s Partnership Program in Boston Public Schools. Exhibited work will be from a range of disciplines, including woodworking, wood turning, furniture refinishing, quilting, knitting, sewing, upholstery, drawing and painting, mixed media, photography and more. Karen Haas, Curator of Photographs for the Lane Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and an Eliot School student, will curate the show.
The Student-Faculty Show is an annual event, and for the first time this year there will be a “Show within a Show” that will spotlight five faculty members and their students. The Eliot School has chosen to feature faculty who work in a variety of mediums, some who teach at the schoolhouse and some who teach in the School Partnership Program. “Show within a Show” artists include: Cindy Arias (Illustration); Pablo Friedmann (Painting); Diane Ivey (Fiber Arts); Ellen Shattuck Pierce (Printmaking); and Susan Vannini (Woodworking).
The Student-Faculty Show is an opportunity for Eliot School artists of all ages and skill levels to share their work and gain inspiration and feedback from their community. It’s also an opportunity for prospective students to connect with the Eliot School community and see examples of things they might expect to make in class.
Some faculty work will be for sale, there will be live music and refreshments will be served. The event happens at the Eliot School, 24 Eliot Street in Jamaica Plain and is free and open to the public.
The Eliot School of Fine and Applied Arts offers training, classes and workshops in crafts and fine arts for children and adults at their schoolhouse in Jamaica Plain, and in Boston’s public schools.
To our faculty
Our students and faculty produce excellent work each year. We love to show off your accomplishments, and the accomplishments of the school. Therefore this year:
- Faculty members may sell up to two pieces of artwork at the show. (Please see guidelines.)
- Due to the amazingly large volume of submissions last year, size of artwork will be limited, no larger than 24" x 30". We cannot guarantee large items of artwork beyond the size limit.
- This year we are asking everyone to submit the submission form online. Please click here to fill out the submission form.
- Please let students throughout the year know about the event and encourage them to participate.
- Provide us with names of students you want to recommend.
- Come represent our fine students and teachers to the public at large.
To make the show as strong as it can be, we need YOUR exhibition contribution, and your help publicizing the event. We look forward to seeing you there!
