Marnie Sheridan Gallery

The Marnie Sheridan Gallery is a teaching gallery, a space for learning about various cultures, styles of art, and different artistic mediums. Many activities take place in the gallery, and exhibits are scheduled to focus, when possible, on themes appropriate to the curriculum.

This gallery is dedicated to the memory of Marnie Sheridan, a gifted artist from the Harpeth Hall Class of 1972, whose life was tragically cut short. This space is devoted to present and future generations of students, with the hope that each girl will discover her own creative talents.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 615-297-9543.

Tess Erlenborn Davies: Off the Canvas

Off the Canvas

Opening Reception | Thursday, November 14 | 6:30 - 8 p.m.

Exhibition dates | October 21 – January 17, 2019

This fall, the Marnie Sheridan Gallery at Harpeth Hall is excited to present Off the Canvas featuring work by local artist and Harpeth Hall alumna, Tess Erlenborn Davies '10. Through the expression of abstract forms and familiar natural objects, Tess explores how two disparate things exist together in a space on - or off - the canvas. Stillness and movement, color and contrast, human and nature, and structure and looseness all exist together in her work that has paint extend off the canvas and onto gallery walls. Tess is also the recipient of this year's Carell Artist in Residence at Harpeth Hall and will be working with art students this January during Winterim to create a unique work of art that incorporates her signature style.
