Springtime means change, and change is certainly on tap for the months of May and June at the Dartmouth Cultural Center on Elm Street.

Center President Pauline Santos and Grants Chairman Thomas Leverett joined Townsquare Sunday to run down the spring schedule.

The latest exhibit is called "The Figurative Exhibition." Santos said figurative art is the celebration of the human form.

"It's a very interesting exhibit," Santos said. "The artwork features different aspects of the human body, nothing racy or anything like that, but it includes 12 or 13 different items, from paintings to sculpture."

Santos said "The Figurative Exhibition" is a juried show, meaning they were judged to be the best of more than 30 pieces of art that were submitted. The exhibit will be up until June 1.

Pottery and sculpture will be featured in a new exhibit beginning June 7 at the Dartmouth Cultural Center.

Cali Almy and her husband Whitmore Boogearts operate a studio in Westport. Their exhibit at the Dartmouth Cultural Center will include clay pottery and sculpture using metal and other items you don't normally see. That exhibit will run through July 6.

The Dartmouth Cultural Center is also hosting activities as part of 2024 ArtWeek SouthCoast, running from May 9 to May 19. Workshops include Painting a Mother's Day Card, Cartooning Basis, and an Animal Diversity Program.
