The BAFFA Art Gallery has been housed in the Gillette House since 1984. Before that, it was located at the Islip Grange beginning in 1978. The Gallery promotes local artists by providing a beautiful venue to exhibit their work. Shows usually change on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Over the years, the BAFFA Gallery has featured dozens of individual artists as well as many different art groups. In addition, each spring, the BAFFA Gallery is proud to recognize, support, and encourage our student artists. The Gallery sponsors art shows for local elementary and middle schools and a popular and prestigious juried high school competition with student artists from high schools across Suffolk County. Participating schools come from Brentwood in the west to Eastport - South Manor in the east. The Olivia and Harlan Fischer Best in Show Award winner receives a $1,000 scholarship. Additionally, the Jacqueline C. Palmer Award of $500 is presented to a graduating high school senior for outstanding artwork.
