A public celebration of the creative spirit.
Founded in 2013, the Pomfret School Gallery is home to a rotating exhibit of student, faculty, and guest artwork. It also serves as an intimate performance space. In 2017, the gallery moved to the historic Bosworth Block Building in the heart of downtown Putnam, CT. Overlooking Cargill Falls, this off-campus venue gives Pomfret student-artists the opportunity to create and curate exhibits and performances in a public space. Many student pieces are available for purchase, with proceeds benefiting the operation of the gallery. The Pomfret School Gallery is managed by Studio Arts Teacher Jean-Paul Jacquet with the help of an advisory committee.
Go Griffins Go: Arts and Athletics at Pomfret
January and February
Opening: Friday, January 11 at 6 p.m.
Since the mid-twentieth century, Pomfret’s curriculum has required students to participate in both arts and athletics. This show highlights current student work and archival memorabilia that represents a combination of Griffin artistic expression and athleticism.
Featured artwork includes photography by Ella Hutchinson ’19, multimedia and digital work by Dylan Weichselbaumer ’19, paintings by Preston Pagli ’19, creative prose by Peyton Durand ’19, lifelike tape sculptures from the Sculpture and Ceramics class, and an on-site video performance by the Movement for Athletes dance class. Displayed alongside these works are vintage photos, athletic jerseys, and equipment from the school’s archives.
