The Archipley Cultural Center has 13 non-secure, open alcove zones and one glassed in, locking space: Alsop Gallery. All spaces are designed to complement the presented artwork with neutral colored walls, museum quality lighting, and hanging systems. Gallery spaces are open to the campus community and public daily. Because we are committed to serving our student population, themes and schedules for the gallery are geared toward supporting and enhancing the learning goals of both the academic and residential programs of Eagle Hill School. The Center at Eagle Hill hosts two invitational exhibits each year, in addition to an annual student exhibit in conjunction with the Arts on the Hill family weekend in May. This exhibit continues throughout the summer.

Each exhibit is insured in full, provided the artist has submitted an approved inventory list that includes the value of each piece. Artists should bear in mind the limited security arrangements when deciding which works to exhibit.
Artwork may be sold. Each artist is responsible for conducting the sale of any work directly with the buyer. Works sold must remain on exhibit throughout the designated period.
Eagle Hill School is mindful that all segments of the community and all age groups will have access to all exhibits, therefore we reserve the right to be discriminatory concerning the appropriateness of works of sensitive or controversial nature (e.g. works including nudity, vulgarity, etc.).
Student/Community/Artist Interaction Requirement
Each artist can choose to present a 40-minute school-wide presentation (presentation content to be discussed with the artist), or each artist may choose to interact with our student body and faculty community through participation in a type of mutually agreed upon hands-on activity, such as a workshop or artist-led creative experience.
