Join Jack Phaneuf for a reception of his show Finally Out, which will be on display in the Flora T. Little Art Gallery through the month of May. 

About the Artist:
Jack Phaneuf, former art teacher at Whitman-Hanson Regional High School and Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School, has been making art for the past 65 years. After three semesters at Mass College of Art, Jack felt a call to religious life. He joined the Discalced Carmelite Order during which time earned a bachelors degree in Philosophy and Art from the University of Santa Clara in Santa Clara, California. Leaving the Order after six years, Jack had many odd jobs while taking education courses at local colleges with an eye to teaching art in high school. He got a job at Whitman-Hanson. After two years he took the job at Bridgewater-Raynham where he remained for 31 years. He retired from B-R in 2004 and has worked in his studio, North Star until the present.


About the Exhibit:
This exhibit is a retrospect of the many kinds of art I’ve done during my life. From pleine air oil sketches to hard edge paintings, and the acrylic wash paintings I continue to create.


All are welcome! No registration required.

When to Worry: Know the FACTS | Mental Health Awareness Training for Parents and Caregivers

Image includes magnifying glass over outline of head with jigsaw pieces. Lightbulb. questions marks, and speech bublle. Text reads When to Worry. Know the Facts. Mental Health Awareness Training for parents and caregivers.


This Mental Health Awareness Month, join The NAN Project to get the FACTS!

The NAN Project recognizes the critical role of parents and caregivers in mental health awareness and suicide prevention for young people.

If you're worried about your child's mental health, you're not alone. Rising rates of anxiety, depression, and suicidality in youth are impacting every community in Massachusetts, and across the country. As parents and caregivers, it can be difficult to know what to look out for in your child, and when it's time to worry.

This training will provide a practical outline of the FACTS (feelings, actions, changes, threats, and situations) that may indicate a child is struggling, and suggestions on how to start a conversation with a young person in crisis.

The NAN Project was established in 2015 and is dedicated to raising the conversation about depression and suicide above a whisper by giving communities and schools the forum, tools, and resources needed to accept and address depression and suicidality.

Registration is required.

If you're worried about your child's mental health, you're not alone. Rising rates of anxiety, depression, and suicidality in youth are impacting every community in Massachusetts, and across the country. As parents and caregivers, it can be difficult to know what to look out for in your child, and when it's time to worry.
