Welcome to the Helen Bumpus Gallery website.

The Helen Bumpus Gallery was established in 1968 through the generosity of my grandmother Helen McBurnie Bumpus with a gift to the Town of Duxbury, Massachusetts.  It sponsors a series of art exhibits, receptions, demonstrations, and gallery talks, an award and scholarship program, and collaborative endeavors with other community organizations. Learn more.

Find out about the Gallery's current, upcoming, and previous exhibits; our scholarship and award program; our financial support; guidelines for prospective artists; and hours and directions. Be sure to join our new e-mail newsletter list (see box below left) to learn about upcoming exhibits.

We hope that you will have the opportunity to visit the Gallery and welcome your comments on our exhibits.
