The Gallery

The Waynflete Gallery is a resource and showcase for the entire Waynflete community. It seeks to feature the Early Childhood-Grade12 Visual Arts program and to be an opportunity for school-wide focus on particular themes. To that end it includes at least two studio exhibitions and one or two "community" shows a year. These shows have addressed topics such as social justice, the environment, diversity, and identity. They have also included hands-on participatory shows, alumni exhibitions, faculty and staff shows, and featured collections owned by the school.

 

Exhibitions planned for the 2019-2020 school year are:

Building Bridges
Portraits of Immigrants and Refugees
A traveling exhibition from Family Diversity Projects
September 16, 2019- December 13, 2019

Harness the Wind

Showing now in THE WAYNFLETE GALLERY:

September 16, 2019- December 13, 2019

Building Bridges
Portraits of Immigrants and Refugees
A traveling exhibition from Family Diversity Projects

The photo exhibit features interviews with each subject and text in two versions, one for a younger audience.

"Building Bridges offers an intimate view of the lives of immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers. With the escalation of anti-immigrant sentiment in the United States, it feels crucial to understand why each individual in this exhibit originally came to the United States and what their lives are like now."

~Peggy Gillespie, co-creator of Family Diversity Projects
