The Wedeman Gallery at the Yamawaki Art and Cultural Center is designed to support the educational and extracurricular programs of Lasell College and Lasell Village through artistic and cultural activities designed for all members and friends of the broadest College community. In recent years, the Gallery has exhibited work by local and national artists, and hosted student and faculty art shows. The Wedeman Gallery was dedicated in honor of Overseer Harriet “Honey” Markham Wedeman ’48 and the late Duane “Joe” Wedeman in 2002 in recognition of their magnificent generosity to Lasell’s sesquicentennial campaign and their unwavering loyalty to Lasell.
The gallery features two full floors to display artwork, professional lighting, wall hangings, and enough space for guests to enjoy the artwork and exhibition opening receptions.
