Each year two concurrent juried shows showcase artistic talent of emerging and established member artists. Off the Wall communicates the unique vision of renowned guest jurors, while Community of Artists provides a snapshot of some of the most exciting work done by artists living and working in New England.
For Off the Wall 2010, co-jurors Jen Mergel and Helen Molesworth, chose 113 works from 800 pieces of art submitted by 452 artists. As a way to celebrate the artistic talents of so many of our members, the Danforth staff have also selected nearly 140 additional works that will be shown concurrently in our Community of Artists exhibition.
