In September of 2018 St. Paul’s School officially opened the new Crumpacker Gallery. The state-of-the-art gallery is located on the upper level of the building once known as Freeman Student Center. It features a modern, spacious, two-level design. The extensively renovated building is also home to a climate-controlled collection storage area and two fine arts classrooms.
As a teaching gallery, the Crumpacker Gallery features exhibitions which coincide with topics and techniques taught in the fine arts curriculum. Exhibiting artists are invited to take part in the Visiting Artists Program where they give community-wide gallery talks and spend class time in the fine arts studios. The gallery schedule includes four major shows a year, featuring works from both well-known and up-and-coming painters, sculptors, photographers, illustrators and collectors. Faculty and student works are also shown annually.
