Ah Haa School for the Arts



Daniel Tucker Gallery

Honoring the vision and questing curiosity of Ah Haa’s founder, Daniel Tucker, our new exhibition space explores the power of imagination and the creative impulse that is core to the human spirit. Artists have always played a crucial role in shaping our identities and our communities by inspiring reflection, generating dialog and sparking change. The Daniel Tucker Gallery will be a place of experimentation, exploration and celebration of the artistic spirit through a thought-provoking series of exhibitions, installations, artist talks and interactive experiences.

Once the purview of superheroes and costume parties, masks have become symbols of pandemic life, personal protection, and political statements. From Halloween frivolity to civic responsibility, masks serve as an outward mode of self-expression and opportunity for creativity.

Eighteen months after masks shifted from unassuming objects to symbolic and contentious artifacts of our new world, the Ah Haa School invites ten local artists to reclaim, reimagine and revolutionize the mask. Fantastical, funny, poignant and personal, the pieces showcased in the MASKED exhibition reflect the cultural, and psychological significance of masks in art and society.


Exhibition open October 7th – 29th, M-F


In 1991, bookmaker, writer and teacher Daniel Tucker founded Ah Haa School for the Arts as a center for artistic exploration and inspiration. Soon after, Judith Kohin stepped into the role of Director. Both artists themselves, Daniel and Judy established the creative foundation of Ah Haa’s mission to foster imagination, insight and personal expression in all.  For the 30th anniversary of Ah Haa School for the Arts, and the opening of the Ah Haa’s new home in the Silver Jack Building, the Ah Haa celebrates Daniel Tucker and Judith Kohin with an intimate exhibition of some of their recent personal artistic works.
