Arts Hall of Fame Inductee Ned Reade

Homecoming and Reunion Weekend is one of Trinity-Pawling’s most honored traditions and ways to celebrate our cherished alumni. On September 22-23, 2023, many members of the School community will gather on campus to reconnect, reminisce, and revel in their shared Trinity-Pawling experiences. In addition to the usual festivities, this year’s reunion event will also feature an exciting, first-ever induction into the new Arts Hall of Fame.

Established in the spring of 2023, the Arts Hall of Fame recognizes former student-artists and teachers who have “brought honor upon Trinity-Pawling School by virtue of outstanding creativity in visual arts, performing arts, art history, multimedia, literature, architecture, and/or other art forms, as well as exemplary contributions to their alma mater, community, and/or chosen profession.” The criteria continues: “The inductees reflect the School’s values of excellence, character, community, and curiosity. They inspire creative thinking, collaboration, and bold expression through their example.”

In honor of his 45 years as a devoted art teacher, coach, and mentor at Trinity-Pawling and his ongoing work as an artist, gallery owner, and faithful supporter of the arts, Ned Reade will be inducted into the Arts Hall of Fame in a special ceremony in Gardiner Learning Commons on Saturday, September 23, 2023 at 2:15 PM. We hope you will join us as we honor and celebrate Ned and his transformational service to the School.
