An exhibition of artwork by the middle and upper school visual art faculty at Riverdale Country School (Bronx, NY) will be on display from September 5th through September 27th, 2019, at An Beal Bocht Café (445 West 238th, St., BX NY 10463). The opening reception is on Thursday, September 5th, 2019, from 4 – 6 PM.

The department consists of 8 art educators of different backgrounds, regions, and ages, committed to making and teaching art. The exhibit presents a diverse range of works including painting, drawing, electronics, sculpture, and photography. These works of invention, observation, and commentary come from the world of art and the world of teaching - individual works by a team accustomed to working collaboratively to foster creativity among students.
