Faculty Showcase Their Talents in The Gallery
Last month, the Hopkins Keator Gallery opened a new exhibit showcasing the hidden talents of staff and faculty members on The Hill.
The gallery features paintings by Gabby Gerstenfeld, multi-media work by Tilden Daniels, the rustic stylings of Canny Cahn, Those Poetix by Ian Melchinger, 3D work by Ian Clark, the musical compositions of Ian Guthrie, and the mathematical talent of Dan Gries. Anna Simon ’20 said she enjoyed seeing the work of three of her teachers, both past and present, in the gallery: “It was so interesting to see another facet of my teachers’ lives and how they express themselves outside of the classroom.” One of those teachers is Gerstenfeld, whose collection included a still life series of close-up fruits (pictured below). Gerstenfeld said her purpose for the paintings was to challenge herself and encourage others to “observe the normal and common objects close to you by focusing on the shape, the light, and the colors. That way, you can give life to seemingly normal objects in another perspective.”
