High Art 2024: DISTORTIONS

This was posted on September 19th, 2023

Exhibition: May 14th – 30th, 2024

For Educators:

  • Deadline for participation: Friday, December 1st, 2023
  • Install Dates: Thursday, May 9th & Friday, May 10th, 2024 
  • Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony: Wednesday, May 15th from 6:30-8pm. Free and open to all.
  • Pickup Dates: Friday, May 31st and Saturday, June 1st, 2024



Ponder the line between familiar and unfamiliar as a springboard to explore the 2024 High Art theme of DISTORTIONS. The art of distortion is described as a change to the shape, form, or size of a subject to convey an emotion, create a new meaning or profound visual impact, or even warp our sense of reality.  Contemplate exaggerated facial features, deflated balloons, melted crayons, pixelation, reflections in a broken mirror or unique surface, the sound of your voice underwater, or twisting the truth. 

Schools will define their unique response to distortions and explore how it will shape their concept and art installation. For inspiration look to artists through the ages such as Salvador Dali, Dan Hillier, Tony Matelli, Nadia Attura, Takashi Murakami, Cassandra Yap and Darian Mederos.

What is installation art? Installation art uses any material invention to modify the way a space is experienced and can be either temporary or permanent. The genre can incorporate a broad range of materials, including but not limited to huge, three-dimensional painting/murals, sculpture, poems, and new media such as video and sound.

Public art enlivens and enhances cities and can turn public spaces into destinations.  Weaving visual art into an urban environment by offering public art encounters brings people together, creates pride-of-place and invites engagement. 

A collaboration between the City of Attleboro, Transformative Development Initiative (TDI) Partnership, Keep Attleboro Beautiful, Attleboro Arts Museum, volunteer artists that either live and/or work in Attleboro, and generous individuals has been activated to transform the surface of Attleboro’s sidewalk utility boxes into gallery-worthy works of art.   

The Fungus Among Us by Abby Rovaldi appears on a utility box in Attleboro’s Gilbert Perry Square.  This photo is a rendering of the completed Phase 1 box.

Each box is marked with a QR code. When viewers scan the code with a smartphone camera they’ll find a statement about the artwork pictured on a given box, background on each artist and an online survey to capture their feedback on the program.

Organizers hope to expand the program throughout the city and turn other basic, functional structures into contemporary, eye-catching street markers.

SHARE YOUR FEEDBACK! Let us know your thoughts on Think Outside the Box. Complete this brief survey:

Sponsorship opportunites for additional boxes are available.  Email to learn more.

“Devoted Daughter” by Madi Cook-Comey, Wheaton College Class of 2019. Found object, embroidery thread, acrylic and watercolor.


Since 2007 the Attleboro Arts Museum has been an active partner in the NEA Big Read: Attleboro.  In this National Endowment for the Arts program, participants are encouraged to read the same book at the same time – and extend their connection to the chosen text through local arts and culture activities. The NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. 

This year, in collaboration with sculpture students from Wheaton’s College Department of Visual Art and History of Art, the Attleboro Arts Museum presents Enormity – an exhibition of original 3D forms inspired by Nathaniel Philbrick’s bestseller In the Heart of the Sea.

Enormity explores perilousness and overwhelmingly difficult circumstances. Emerging sculptors interpret the actions of a vengeful whale, the profound struggles between moral code vs. survival and how – despite being surrounded by the seemingly endless angry seas – one fights to carry on.

Tempera: Nature and Narrative

  • 2pm – 3pm: Egg tempera demonstration by exhibiting artist Eileen Kennedy

“Dona Nobis Pacem” by Eileen Kennedy, egg tempera.


Exhibiting artists:

  • Michael Bergt
  • Jon Gernon
  • Miranda Gray
  • Eileen Kennedy
  • Jennifer Knaus
  • Carol A. O’Neill
  • Banjie Nicholas
  • Diane Savino



“Imagination” by Michael Bergt, egg tempera.


Egg tempera is a mystical medium as it has roots in the early Renaissance.  During this time period, such artists as Giotto, Piero della Francesca and Fra Angelico were paying homage to the deity and angels.  The medium sanctified nature and all that it touched in its pictorial plane. Naturalism played an important role on the depiction of sacred themes. 

The act of creating these magnificent jewel-like paintings was accomplished through simple media: the yolk of an egg, ground powdered pigments and water.  Mixed together and applied with tiny brushstrokes, which layered color upon color, an artist could achieve translucency and opaqueness.  The weaving of brushstroke and tempered paint created exquisite iconic artworks.   The nature of the tempera medium is open for experimentation as well as continuum with ancient practices in our modern day.

The eight artists in this exhibit have conceived new stories which are documented through the medium of tempera.  Michael Bergt’s work features the human figure, integrating classical myths, sensuality, and the human condition.  Jon Gernon draws inspiration from the Renaissance, drawing on symbolism and combining it with magic realism.  Both Carol A. O’Neill and Banjie Nicholas are drawn to nature, weaving birds and leaves into their picture planes.  Jennifer Knaus marries female iconography with quirky elements of nature; she is interested in tapping into the subconscious.  Eileen Kennedy’s painted narratives come from dreams and memories to create stylized figures caught up in shallow spaces.  Lastly, Diane Savino weaves nature with human nature, creating commentaries about journeys, desires and sanctity.

This exhibition offers fresh approaches to a medium that the Italian writer, Cennini Cennino, wrote about in his treatise in the 1400s. The participating artists feel a kinship with the ancient medium, drawing inspiration from early masters and continuing their artistic lineage.
