Point as I Point


October 20, 2023 to April 2, 2024
"Photographers, the good ones at least, have always been good pointers. Look here, see this."
Renowned curator and critic John Szarkowski wrote those words in reference to Eugene Atget and his ability to inform the viewer with his photographs. Pointing his camera here, directing the viewer there. With the camera, the photographer is saying, what I see, I also want you to see. The act of pointing, then, is a chief concern of the photographer.

About the 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.
