The Dana Hall Art Gallery presentsCongdon Sabbatical Show: Mary Ann McQuillan and Matt Enlow, running now through November 15. The show features the work of McQuillan, an Upper School visual arts teacher, and Enlow, an Upper School math teacher, who both participated in the Congdon Sabbatical Program during the 2018-19 school year.
McQuillan produced a documentary film,The Free Table, about a swap table in Cambridge where neighbors could leave items for others to take and vice versa. Enlow created art involving images and objects based on math concepts.
“The short film I made is an observational documentary, which means that much of the story unfolds in front of the camera,” McQuillan said. “I was interested in observing the interpersonal dynamics that the Free Table creates. I ended up observing a community experiencing an identity crisis with the sudden closure of the table.”
Located in the Classroom Building, the Dana Hall Art Gallery is open to the public Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The gallery is closed weekends and school holidays.
"My favorite Dana Hall memory would be the first time I ever sang the Alma Mater with my fellow classmates. That was most definitely the first time I felt like I was truly a part of something. Joining hands with my future Silver Sisters made me truly feel like I was a Dana girl."
