In 2013, The United Parish of Auburndale opened the Betty Meyer Gallery in honor of dedicated congregant, art critic and educator, Betty Meyer. In the 1960’s and 70’s, Meyer brought art to the local community through her active role inviting artists to exhibit and talk about their work. Upon her death, several UPA members became interested in transforming a beautiful space in the church building known as “The Parish Hall” into a dedicated gallery for neighbors to view, enjoy, and discuss the work of local artists.
Our purpose is to maintain a presence in the Newton community for artists who help us understand the maxim by Joseph Campbell, a contemporary of Betty Meyer:
“One looks, looks long, and the world comes in.”
The United Parish of Auburndale (UPA) accepts applications by invitation for exhibitions of art by local artists. Applications will be reviewed and selected by the Exhibitions Committee.
