Annual Art Exhibit

Since 2009, Country Day has hosted a public art exhibition featuring well-known artists and art collections generously shared by members of our own community. The range of art exhibits we feature ties art education directly to our community, reaching all levels of interest and age groups.

“Our exhibits serve to affirm community and deepen the connection between artist and viewer by sharing finished works of art and revealing the intent, creation, and process that inspires the work on display, which relates directly to our fine arts curriculum at all levels. ”

Tom Delaney, Upper School Art Department Chair and Hance Family Gallery Director
