DEAN’S MESSAGE

Family Van, oil on found cardboard, 24 x 36, $4,200

I am especially appreciative of the ways in which alumni continue to connect with and support SMFA through the Art Sale. Their contributions help fortify a growing community of artists in Boston and beyond, and ensure that SMFA remains a vital force in contemporary art.

The sale of works by stalwart and emerging artists alike is critical for our students past, present and future. Each purchase supports alumni and community members who donated their works, as well as boosts SMFA’s financial aid fund for current and prospective students. The generosity you provide goes a long way in making sure that all of our artists are heard, and that new voices continue to join our ranks.

Thank you again for being a part of SMFA’s Art Sale! Onward!

It is difficult for me to express just how excited I am that after two years as a virtual exhibition, the 2022 SMFA Art Sale returns to an in-person experience! I look forward to seeing you and the extended school community as we celebrate not only the great effort so many have made to make this a warm “welcome back,” but also the pleasure of engaging with art physically and viscerally once again. To spend time with this unexpected brushstroke, or that funky, fuzzy texture— to dwell on an artist’s techniques and the ideas that go along with them—isn’t that what it’s all about?

The SMFA Art Sale has been the leading contemporary art sale in New England since its creation in 1978. Presenting a diverse offering of works that are both visually engaging and thoughtprovoking, the sale showcases the immensely talented students, alumni, faculty, and friends of SMFA.

Thank you to our institutional sponsors: Art New England, Fortress, Horizon Beverage, and Stanhope Framers.

STANHOPE FRAMERS

With more than 250 participating artists and 1,000 works of art, this sale features exciting new work from well-recognized names such as Helina Metaferia, Gabriel Sosa, and Tara Lewis, as well as the work of many first-time participants, including Lauren Nauman, Cora Roth, and Steve Buduo.

The collection was juried by Yng-Ru Chen, Founder and CEO of Praise Shadows Art Gallery; SMFA Alumnus Juan Omar Rodriguez, curator of contemporary art based in Philadelphia, PA and a Curatorial Fellow at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; Matthew Woodward, Senior Interior Designer at Hacin + Associates; and SMFA Alumna Tiffany Shea York, Assistant Director, Artist-inResidence Program and Special Projects at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

2022 SPONSORS

6 Invisible Cities 321

“The structure of the city and the structure of the mind are conflated in my paper constructions, paintings, and drawings. I’m interested in states of mind, how experience is translated into thought, how memories are layered, and how dreams jumble reality. Contemporary city grids and plans of ancient ruins are layered and edited along with references to mental networks. In my invented terrains shape and shadow interact invoking memory, presence, and absence.”

ELLEN SHATTUCK PIERCE, BFA 96

Ellen Shattuck Pierce is an artist living in Boston, MA, USA. She loves printmaking and its history as a decorative art, medium for protest, and for distributing knowledge. She embraces all three of these aspects by using relief cuts to create allegorical scenes of American life in her prints and wallpapers. Her work has been shown recently in Sharjah, UAE and will soon be on exhibit in Havana, Cuba. When not printmaking she is teaching art to five through eleven year olds in the Cambridge Public Schools and

Coming Out of the Woods

“As a mother and a public school art teacher I have had a window through which to view the pandemic’s effect on families’ lives in east Cambridge, Massachusetts. I zoomed into two hundred and thirty homes to teach art to kindergarteners through fifth graders. Recording the pain, anxiety and grief over the past two years has resulted in a series of thirteen relief carvings I call the Covid Chronicles.”

CECILIA OROZCO, BFA 24

Cecilia Orozco is a Nicaraguan-Costa Rican artist currently studying at the School of Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. Her art practice concentrates on drawings that fall under the spectrum of magic realism to express stories inspired by her Latinx identity and personal narratives.

“Themes I often go back to are family and childhood. I most enjoy creating artworks that showcase Latin culture in the bright and positive light that I know, but I also create works that deal with more difficult aspects of the same. For the viewer to find a story through small details and close look of my drawings is something that I strive for.”

SMFA ART SALE

THE SCHOOL OF THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS AT TUFTS UNIVERSITY

Founded in 1978, the SMFA Art Sale is one of the largest public art sales in New England. SMFA students (including anyone who ever took a class at the school), alumni, faculty, Boston area artists, and staff are eligible to submit work. Proceeds from the sale are split between the artist and SMFA at a percentage designated by the artist (never less than 50% to SMFA). The percentage that comes to SMFA supports financial assistance for SMFA at Tufts students. In the 2021-2022 school year, nearly 43% of Tufts University students and 56% of SMFA at Tufts students received financial assistance support. This sale, in addition to the generosity of those who also support the SMFA Annual Fund, is critical to providing emerging artists with the resources needed to hone their creative voice and engage in asking questions that matter for our society.
