Upcoming Exhibitions

Beginning in September:

NESA (New England Sculptors Association) presents: The Nature Show

August 28 - November 4, 2016

The Hess Gallery at Pine Manor College is pleased to present The Nature Show! Starring members of NESA, the New England Sculptors Association.
25 sculptors from across New England bring their work—and their very personal connections to the natural world—to the Pine Manor College campus this fall. The venerable, wooded campus, with specimen trees and Roxbury puddingstone outcroppings, is an ideal venue for a widely diverse group work ranging from the abstract, to the realistic, to the whimsical. Additional work is displayed inside at The Hess Gallery itself.

Exhibiting artist Catherine Evans will conduct a participatory, group sculpture project, so watch for more information!

Beginning in November:

Deborah McDuff and Thea Shapiro: Coffee and Tea


How much does a cup of coffee and tea really cost? McDuff and Shapiro create surprising art from re-puposed coffee filters and tea bags, like giant coffee cups, dresses, hats, and murals. The duo also explores the history of coffee and tea by hosting a tealeaf and coffee grind reading. Viewers can discover the process of the coffee and tea business while viewing art in the Hess gallery and attending a campus reception.
