Art Work by Dedham Country Day School Students and Faculty Featured at DSAG
Dedham, MA—The Dedham Square Artist Guild (DSAG), located in Dedham Square, will exhibit the work of selected DCD Middle School students along with pieces by their instructors, DCD faculty members Duane Claussen and Gerry Clifford, April 11-18, 2013.

Having taken notice of the unique and striking works of art being made by DCD students, DSAG has arranged this first public exhibit of student art at the gallery located at 553 High Street.

The arts in its many forms, both visual and performing arts, are an important part of the curriculum at DCD, with time set aside each day for art and music at each grade level. In the Middle School, there are more than 40 electives ranging from musical theatre to furniture making to building virtual worlds on the computer. Students take three arts courses each term, for a total of nine each year.

DCD faculty members Gerry Clifford, who teaches woodworking, and Duane Claussen, who teaches metalsmithing, are both professional artists who show and sell their work.

Many of the student pieces being exhibited were also award winners at the recent SISAL (Small Independent School Art League) show held at the Carroll School.

The exhibit opens Thursday, April 11, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., at 553 High Street. All are welcome to attend. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday 12-6 and Thursday, 12-8, Friday and Saturday, 12-6, and Sunday, 11-3.
