Letter from the Curator

The Grubbs Gallery serves two important purposes. First, it is a valuable educational tool for our Williston community. Second, it supports both regional and non-regional artists, artisans, and sculptors, providing them with an unique exhibition space on a beautiful campus in the Pioneer Valley--which itself is rich with artists.

Monthly exhibits expose our students to some of the vast artistic styles and media that exist. Individual exhibitors are asked to give a gallery talk and/or to discuss their inspirations, techniques, and medium choices with a studio class.

The students benefit from the opportunity to ask the guest artists questions: why they paint in a particular style, how their work is political, why a certain subject interests them, how long a piece took to complete, and everything else that comes to mind!

Every year, the Grubbs Gallery features a great line-up of shows. The schedule often includes abstract and figurative paintings in oils and watercolors, sculptures, etchings, collages, and more.

We welcome you to any and all shows!
