In keeping with Sawtooth School’s art education mission, the gallery hosts exhibitions that emphasize some aspect of the schools programming. Our creative and diverse faculty is showcased throughout the year in the Davis Gallery and student work is celebrated with an annual exhibit.
Sawtooth School is happy to accommodate groups that wish to view our facility and galleries. To ensure the best experience for our visitors and for our students, we require that tours for groups of six or more be arranged in advance. Group tours are available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 336-723-7395 to schedule your visit.
In addition, the community at large is invited to join Sawtooth School for each exhibition opening and related publicized events. Admission to the gallery is free and open to the public.
The shop showcases artwork from our accomplished faculty and advanced students. New work arrives frequently from our current faculty and with the addition of new instructors. Please visit often, we’re certain you’ll find great gifts created by our local artisans/instructors. Ask us about gift certificates! We offer 10% off purchases in the Sawtooth gift shop on Mondays to our members (except during Deck the Halls).
Our hours of operation are 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM Monday-Friday and 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Saturday. We are closed on Sunday.For Hahn’s project, “Beyond the Edge of the Fields”, he recognized he had a need to break down certain barriers and get out of his comfort zone. He decided venture out where photographers would not go. He communicated with people who normally are considered insignificant; he wanted to show raw emotion from those disconnected from society. In an attempt to show their side of the story, Hahn took photographs that are a realistic documentation of those often unseen or overlooked. Each photograph invites the viewers to seek answers to questions they normally don’t ask.
The Davis Gallery at Sawtooth will feature two exhibits running Sept. 7 to Oct. 30. “Landscape and Memory” will showcase art from Weston Hammond and “Strata: Life/Work” will feature art from Tom Suomalainen.
Weston Hammond is a visual artist and art educator who explores light, landscape and materials in his work. Tom, who has worked with clay for more than 50 years, was the first full-time instructor at the Arts and Craft Association, which eventually became Sawtooth. Tom will teach a Handbuilding Workshop at Sawtooth in October.
The opening reception for the exhibit will be held on Sept. 7 from 5 – 7 p.m. Both artists will participate in an Artists on Art event, a dialogue about the artists’ creative processes and influences, on Oct. 11 from 6 – 7:30p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
