The Zullo Gallery is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization originally created by the Medfield Council on the Arts to support and promote the arts through the exhibition of a wide range of fine artwork. It is a place for art exhibition, art education and live music performances. When the renovation is complete, it will also include a cafe. The gallery began in 1988 as a volunteer project of the Medfield Council on the Arts as a way to bring a wide variety of professional art into town for exhibition.
Over the past 35 years the gallery has presented more than 160 art exhibitions. Shows have featured members of The New England Watercolor Society, The Copley Society of Boston, The Boston Printmakers as well as individuals from The Fort Point Arts Community in South Boston and The Brickbottom Artists Cooperative in Somerville.
Our exhibition program begins in September with a Juried Show which is open to all artists, and continues through the summer with a variety of Exhibits, each lasting seven to eight weeks. In April, the gallery presents a special four week Student/Faculty Art Exhibit that features work of the art instructors and students in grades 1-12 from the Medfield Public Schools.
In the spring of 1996, the gallery introduced a Live Music program. Since then we have presented over forty performances featuring jazz, acoustic rock, and folk music. It is our hope, in this our twenty fifth year, to continue to expand the gallery and center for the arts by featuring a variety of new and exciting art exhibitions, live music performances, art lectures, discussions and workshops.
The Zullo Gallery is funded through donations, grants, art classes, live music performances, rentals, and a percentage of art sales. The gallery operates as a Charitable Trust, administered by a Board of Trustees and managed by an Executive Director. In addition, there is a Board of Directors, an Advisory Board and a Board of Overseers.
