Arts & Design Exhibit 2010
May 5- 25 2010

Art surrounds students at PDS and this exhibit of work by Princeton Day School students in lower, middle and upper schools extends beyond the gallery with art showcased throughout the Matthews Arts Wing and entire campus.

"The hallways and galleries throughout the school are once again filled with shockingly brilliant and creative works of art," says Gallery Director Jody Erdman. "From Lower School wooden assemblages to Middle School landscape paintings and Upper School sculptures, prints and video presentations, our students are excited to see how the visual arts makes a difference in their lives."

Jerry Hirniak
Princeton Day School recently hosted an exhibition of drawings by PDS Upper School visual arts teacher Jerry Hirniak.

987654321 is a meditation on time, death and transformation. The basis for Mr. Hirniak’s drawings is a group of cicada shells found in his backyard. The resin that encases each shell both preserves it in time and simultaneously, through its forceful energy, desecrates it.

Born in England, Mr. Hirniak grew up in Montreal and trained as a painter and printmaker. He has blended experience in the theatre and interests in design and architecture into his practice, incorporating photography, drawing and object making. Mr. Hirniak’s works have been exhibited in museums and galleries in New York, New Jersey, Virginia and Canada.

“I am interested in how spaces, objects and images carry and communicate complex memory, and as a result, the installed works function as a complex and shifting reminder of events, feelings and memories blurred by time,” Mr. Hirniak said. “The show is a countdown, a recording, an enumerating, a way of finding meaning.”

Distant Lives
Eileen Hohmuth-Lemonick

The exhibit includes photographs captured while Ms. Hohmuth-Lemonick traveled in Africa chronicling the nursing shortage in Malawi, as well as images from her trip to the Republic of Georgia, where she photographed new mothers and their babies in maternity hospitals in Kutasi and Tbilisi.

“I’ve long been focusing on people who live in developing countries, and who face challenges many in the developed world can’t easily imagine,” Ms. Hohmuth-Lemonick said.

Ms. Hohmuth-Lemonick has received numerous awards for her work, including a Fellowship in Photography from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts; a Village Voice Documentary Photography Grant; and a Visual Arts Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The exhibition is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday when school is open and by appointment on weekends. For more information, contact Gallery Director Jody Erdman at (609) 924-6700 or visit

Kids Earth Fund Exhibit
The exhibition featured original artwork by children around the world and to purchase notecards, giclee prints, books, t-shirts and hand-painted reusable bags created from children’s artwork.

Princeton Day School teamed up with Kids Earth Fund Americas to offer a unique opportunity to purchase art created by children for children during a special exhibit December 1 through January 15.

The exhibition featured original artwork by children around the world and to purchase notecards, giclee prints, books, t-shirts and hand-painted reusable bags created from children’s artwork.

“Princeton Day School wholeheartedly supports the Kids Earth Fund,” said Gallery Director Jody Erdman. “We will have beautiful art created by children from around the world hanging on our walls and a live performance from our students during the opening event. We look forward to a special exhibition from a wonderful organization.”

Yasmín Hernández
Soul Rebels

See and hear Yasmín Hernández at PDS Part I. View Part II. Videography by Brit Bucklee '12

“Themes of conquest, struggle, displacement, resistance and cultural syncretism manifest in my art…With my images I reveal and celebrate (s)heroes of hidden histories and their legacies. Each figure depicted -- whether a freedom fighter, a spiritual deity, or my mom -- comes from a place of disenfranchisement and is battling to rise above. My intent is to portray these figures as warriors, goddesses and gods in their own right.” -- Yasmín Hernánde

Ms. Hernández is a Cornell University graduate whose works have been displayed at El Museo del Barrio in New York City, El Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, El Taller Puertorriqueño in Philadelphia, and most recently at El Museo Fuerte Conde de Mirasol in Vieques, Puerto Rico,

She received an Artist/Activist of the Year Award in 2006 from the NYC-based Art for Change. She also is a recipient of the Ramón Feliciano Social Justice Prize from the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College and a Mujeres Destacadas/Outstanding Latinas Award by New York-based Spanish-language newspaper El Diario/La Prensa.

Describing her work, Ms. Hernández said, “themes of conquest, struggle, displacement, resistance and cultural syncretism manifest in my art…

Bill Hardy
Breaking Ground II

The Anne Reid '72 Art Gallery opened the 2009-10 season with an exhibit of "field paintings" by Bill Hardy, director of the Holbrook Arts Center at Millbrook School.
Mr. Hardy, the Robert Wood Johnson Jr. Chair in the Arts at Millbrook, holds a master’s degree from San Diego State University. His work is featured in exhibits throughout California, New York, Connecticut and Minnesota. “…I combine the spontaneity of the moment with the beauty of listening, pondering, and painting,” he said. “I feel the paintings become a breaking ground.”

Gallery Director Jody Erdman, a PDS alumna, is eager to share Mr. Hardy’s work with students and the surrounding community. “We are fortunate to have sixteen of Mr. Hardy's beautiful, color field paintings; inspired by interior and exterior landscapes in Dutchess County, the Berkshires and hidden spots in Connecticut,” she said. “His layering of color explodes off the canvas in elegant combinations and harmonies resulting in a series of paintings that you must see.”

“Breaking Ground II” continues a series originated some 20 years ago. With these three-square canvases, Mr. Hardy aspires to “create a tension that was equal on all sides.” While viewers may initially see his work as “large blocks of primary color” Mr. Hardy hopes that on closer examination, “they become a field in which numerous colors exist.”
24/7 access: The Clay Studio of Philadelphia
“24/7 access,” was curated by PDS advanced ceramics students under the supervision of ceramics teacher Monika Jaeckle. Students played a key role in this exhibition, visiting the studio to select works for display, helping install the show and hosting a dinner for participating artists. Artists whose work was featured range in age from mid-20s to early 80s, including Marjorie Robbins, Rivkah Walton, Carole Sivin, Diane Marimow, Kay Gering, Lynne Dorman, Andrew Eastwood, Shannon Donovan, Cheryl Hendershott and Michael Clemmons. Each artist is a member of The Associate Artist program of The Clay Studio, developed in the mid-1980s to meet the needs of advanced students who wanted additional studio space and time to develop their work by providing affordable studio space. Housed on the entire second floor of The Clay Studio, the program now provides space to 40 individuals who have 24-hour, seven-day-a-week access to the space. For more information about The Clay Studio, please visit

Adam Stanforth
PDS was proud to open the 2008-09 gallery season with "Journey Repose," an installation by Adam Stanforth, a Brooklyn artist was featured on the front cover of The New York Times Arts section.
Jody Erdman, a PDS alumnus and director of the Gallery, first encountered Mr. Stanforth's work in the artist's gallery in the Chelsea section of New York City. "The artist carefully reconfigures his paintings into large-grid installations," she said. "I was impressed with his spontaneous gestures and the freshness of his seemly free strokes. I am thrilled that he will be sharing his work with our students." Mr. Stanforth, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, works on individual panels of masonite and other materials covered with wet paint the he pours, blows and moves to evolve into interpretive abstract forms. He describes his work as "metaphorical petri dishes of macro/microscopic bodies of matter." "The process becomes more meditative when the panels are combined with others to form worlds of relationships," he said. "Then the paintings are given freedom and life by being assembled on a wooden structure spanning the space."

China's Qing Dynasty
Princeton Day School displayed decorative arts from China's Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), as well as a collection of bound foot shoes and accessories gathered by PDS parents

The exhibit, beautiful for its artistry alone, also enhanced ongoing classroom explorations of Asian culture and language at PDS. Text accompanying the pieces on display detailed not only the function of the items but also the history and symbolism of the decoration. In addition, Ms. de la Houssaye gave gallery talks to students from primary, middle and high school grades.

Nibbling the White Cube
Princeton Day School invited the public to explore the definition and role of “art” in a new exhibit by a group of local artists dedicated to expanding concepts in the visual arts.

“Nibbling the White Cube,” curated by MOVIS, a group of Princeton artists including PDS art teacher Jerry Hirniak, features fabric, music, photography, sculpture, film projection and drawing with string and tape.

The “white cube” of course is the gallery space itself, described by Brian O’Doherty as a space “constructed along laws as rigorous as those for building a medieval church. The outside world must not come in, so windows are usually sealed off. Walls are painted white. The ceiling becomes the source of light….The art is free ‘to take on its own life’… untouched by time and its vicissitudes.” Participating artists say they have created work “that cannot be tamed and relegated to predictable locations within the neat confines of the Gallery…. Each artwork seems to be passing through the gallery on its way from and to a place marked by the contingencies of real space and time.”Members of the MOVISs group have exhibited widely throughout the United States and internationally and their work is included in many museum collections. Artists participating in the PDS exhibition include Berendina Buist, Susan Hockaday, Eve Ingalls, Jerry Hirniak, Rita Z. Asch, Frank Magalhaes, Margaret Kennard Johnson, Marsha Levin-Rojer and John Goodyear.

Raúl Colón
Princeton Day School was proud to welcome commercial artist and illustator Raúl Colón, who shared his intricate illustrations while working with students of all ages.

Architecture: Deceptively Simple
The Anne Reid '72 Art Gallery showcased work by current PDS architecture students in “Architecture: Deceptively Simple” on display through March 6.

The exhibit, curated by PDS Architecture Teacher and Arts Department Chair David Burkett, includes current work by Upper School students, such as three-dimensional narrative sculptures and models. Exhibits showcase the journey students make as they move from beginner to independent study of architecture and design.

The show’s title reflects how an assignment that may sound simple --- what happens when a square impacts another shape? --- requires a mastery of sophisticated skills, Mr. Burkett said.

In the PDS architecture studio, students learn to understand the built environment, produce architecture through reflection and invention and communicate ideas through a wide range of media.
“Exploring complex concepts, my students develop new ways to communicate powerful images and ideas,” Mr. Burkett said. “This is a process.”

If you would like to exhibit in the Anne Reid '72 Art Gallery, please email three jpegs, a CV and resume to Jody Erdman.




Anne Reid

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 has been a leading force for art appreciation as Director of the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery since 2001.
