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.


Please note: The Gallery was closed during the 2017-2018 school year due to the Lower School renovation. Exhibitions planned for the 2018-2019 school year are:

  • The Heather Brown Collection (pieces donated to the school by Senior Art Department Award recipients)
  • Authenticity, a participatory show about making, interpretation, and originality
  • EC-8 Studio Show
  • Upper School Studio Show

Coming Soon to the Waynflete Gallery:

The Hundred Dresses Project: We Are All In This Together


An exhibit inspired by the timeless children's book “The Hundred Dresses” written by Eleanor Estes and illustrated by Louis Slobodkin, the show emphasizes themes of diversity, inclusion, bullying, and standing up for one’s beliefs.

The dresses in the exhibition were created in response to the themes in the book. Over two hundred dresses were designed by a diverse group of artists including many from our community.

Portraits in Courageous Citizenship

“Portraits of Courageous Citizenship.” draws from Shetterly’s “Americans Who Tell The Truth,” a collection that features portraits and narratives that highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental, and economic fairness. By combining art and other media, Americans Who Tell The Truth offers resources to inspire a new generation of engaged Americans who will act for the common good.
