Exhibitions in the Wellesley College Art Department


The Wellesley College Art Department hosts several formal exhibition spaces-- the Jewett Art Gallery, the Jewett Sculpture Court, and the Jewett Hallway Galleries-- in addition to a number of display and provisional installation spaces throughout the Jewett Arts Center and Pendleton West buildings. In the course of a normal year, these spaces are host to a number of exhibitions, typically a mix of shows by visiting professional artists and our own student artists. At the end of each academic year, all our spaces are turned over to the Senior and Thesis Exhibition, as our graduating seniors showcase their work.

Starting in the Spring of 2020, when we were prevented from exhibiting the work of our graduating seniors in person, we have been creating exhibition websites in tandem with the annual Senior and Thesis Exhibition. See below to view these shows, along with some other exhibitions hosted in our spaces.
