A/W Mission

The mission of Arts/Wayland is to promote artistic expression in Wayland and surrounding communities.

We welcome beginners, experienced artists, and supporters of the arts. We offer exhibits in the Wayland Public Library where all members can display their work. Additionally we organize juried shows at other venues.

The exhibits provide an opportunity for novices as well as seasoned artists to display their work. Another advantage is that artists from all mediums can display their work side by side.

This arrangement allows beginners to learn from others and gain confidence in their work, and for more experienced artists to learn from each other. It also allows interesting comparisons between painters and photographers.

Our gallery talks held in connection with the exhibits have been an effective means for artists to explain and discuss their work.

We also hold informal gatherings throughout the year.
