Anne Reid ’72 Gallery at Princeton Day School presents Summer Sleep, an exhibition by Amorelle Jacox and Shauna Steinbach. Jacox and Steinbach met in the Fall of 2019 during their first semester at Hunter College where they were both pursuing their Master of Fine Arts degrees. Working in distinctly different mediums, the two artists were immediately drawn to each other - Steinbach feeling they “instinctively spoke the same language” recalling a painting by Jacox that felt “metaphysical and gave (them) a sense of knowing through feeling rather than words.” Jacox recalls being “drawn to the simplicity of the forms in (Steinbach’s) work. She describes their sculpture as “elegant and bodily, funny and sexy and grungy and sleek all in one - paired down to their sweetest spot, buzzing on the edge of (object) familiarity and material and phenomenon and body.” Both artists create from a place of curiosity and question asking. They share an interest in the ambiguous nature of time, transitional cycles of knowing and unknowing, a sense of calm within precarity and in Jacox’s words, “the often flimsy delineation of body and object and space.”
To inquire about scheduling a private viewing please send us an email.
Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Email email@example.com with questions or to schedule a tour.
Please note that the gallery is accessible on the main level of the school by the main entrance.
Anne Reid ’72 was a gifted athlete on the PDS field hockey team and a prolific artist under the brilliant direction of Arlene Smith. The talented, outgoing and much loved Reid gave as much to Princeton Day School as it gave her. After she graduated in 1972, her father, Jack Reid, began working with Arlene to create an art gallery for the School. Tragically, as a Skidmore senior in 1975, Anne died in a car accident. Arlene and Jack put their heads together and the new PDS gallery became the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery, which has been instrumental in helping to spread Anne’s passion for the arts to many generations. Anne's classmate and friend Jody Erdman ’72 was a leading force for art appreciation as Director of the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery from 2001 to 2021.
