Goddard House invites you to explore Roots, its ninth annual art show, on view in the Art Gallery from April 10 to May 8. The exhibit is free and open to the public daily from 1 to 4 p.m. 

An ambitious exhibit of juried submissions in a variety of media, Roots addresses the question of what lies beneath the surface – literally, culturally, and metaphorically. The works of 51 local artists engage the viewer in surprising ways, with a breathtaking range of textures, colors, light, and use of materials. Roots includes painting, photography, mixed media, textile, paper, collage, and sculpture. 

MCCThis program is supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
