Our Mission

The Centennial Gallery and Connector is a dynamic exhibition and teaching space that celebrates the arts through showcasing the work of professional and student artists alike. Classes from Pembroke Hill, groups from other schools and organizations, and visitors of all ages can experience and learn about the arts in a welcoming setting. We view art as a vehicle for self-expression, creative freedom, and as serving the purpose of reflecting the full spectrum of diversity that exists both within and outside our PHS community. We see the arts as a place to expand our worldview and facilitate thought-provoking opportunities for robust discussion.

The PHS Gallery will take every effort to notify patrons of artistic expressions that reflect aspects of our world whose aesthetics may push us to places of new learning and discovery. When and where possible, signage will be available for patrons to learn more about the artists, their vision for the work, and ways to further engage after leaving the gallery. All are welcome to explore, question, and critique the art presented in the gallery. We invite people to come in the spirit of wonderment and appreciation for the time, effort, and sacrifice artists and curators have given to expanding our collective worldview.
