Brewster’s Arts faculty have named Blake Flather ’22 of Boxford, Massachusetts, the latest ArtCat of the Moment. As a fourth-year student in the arts, Blake continues to work on improving his craft, his teachers shared. As a Lifer at Brewster, he has explored many facets of art and has been a contributing member to the art community. In Blake’s first two years he explored 3D animation and model creation, moving to photography and studio art in his junior and senior years. In the examples of his work shown here, you see a lively nature image with the regal monarch butterfly and an angled shot of the footbridge by Wolfeboro’s old mill—part of a series Blake did in his afternoon photo group showcasing Wolfeboro in winter. He is never satisfied with his work—always looking to improve himself and to help those around him better their talents as well. Blake continues to look for new inspiration when capturing photos or working in the studio. He has contributed many pieces to the art shows seen each year in the halls of Brewster, and he continues to volunteer his time each week to live stream games for Athletics (sometimes covering three games in one week). For all of his contributions and dedication to the arts over his time at Brewster, Blake Flather ’22 is the ArtCat of the Moment!
“ArtCat” is a relatively new recognition program for student artists at Brewster that celebrates the creative and artistic achievements and contributions of our students. It also aims to give the entire community a chance to learn more about the innovative pursuits of those in our fine and performing arts courses and enrichments. The Inaugural ArtCats in May 2021 were Gerald Jones ’21 of Lithonia, Georgia and Jade Knowles ’21 of Tarpum Bay, The Bahamas. Earlier this year, Brock Dietz ‘25 of Evanston, Illinois took the ArtCat honor for his stellar photography.
