The Mankiw Family Gallery, located on Waltham’s Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School campus, is pleased to announce its next art show featuring work from recent alumni Matteo Triolo and current AP Studio Art students Jackie I. '15, Mousa A. '15, and Junjie T. '15 taking place April 30 – September 30, 2015.
Triolo’s work attempts to ask and answer questions about darkness and illumination. Triolo believes, “Darkness obscures the once known into the realm of memory and imagination. Places, objects, and people come in and out of our lives much like a flashlight through a windowless attic. Places crumble, memories fade, people change, and are consumed by our own personal darkness amongst the attic clutter and cobwebs.” This body of work attempts to explore what resided in his Triolo’s dark attic. “Light provides a path out of the dark playing a subtle role, yet no less important. Light is hope and promise for something new. By illuminating the dark through my paintings, I illuminate myself.”
The culminating elective in the visual arts, AP Studio Art requires students to create a series of teacher-initiated assignments, as well as student-initiated assignments. By concentrating on a particular visual interest or problem, students gain experience in the formal, technical, and expressive means of the artist and at the same time, develop a sense of quality in their own art.
Matteo Triolo is a painter and musician pursuing a BFA in Painting/ Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He grew up in Bolton, MA and attended high school at Chapel Hill- Chauncy Hall where he began to seriously pursue art. While at CH-CH his art teachers encouraged him to continue making art throughout all four years of high school and beyond.
The Mankiw Family Gallery offers exhibitions that explore the breadth of contemporary art featuring emerging to mid-career professional artists and periodically showing the art of faculty, staff and alumni. Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. or by appointment.
