Anne Reid ’72 Gallery at Princeton Day School presents Anne Reid: 50 Years, an exhibition of artwork created by Anne Reid during her years at PDS. Anne was a gifted athlete on the PDS field hockey team and a prolific artist under the brilliant direction of Arlene Smith. The talented, outgoing and much loved Anne gave as much to PDS as it gave her. After she graduated in 1972, her father, Jack Reid, began working with Arlene to create an art gallery for the school. Tragically, as a Skidmore senior in 1975, Anne died in a car accident. Arlene and Jack put their heads together and the new PDS gallery became Anne Reid ’72 Gallery, which has been instrumental in helping to spread Anne’s passion for the arts to many generations. We honor Anne’s impact on the arts at PDS and the 50 year anniversary of the class of 1972 through her artwork, generously on loan from Anne’s brother Archie and his wife Karen.

Anne Reid

Anne Reid ’72 was a gifted athlete on the PDS field hockey team and a prolific artist under the brilliant direction of Arlene Smith. The talented, outgoing and much loved Reid gave as much to Princeton Day School as it gave her. After she graduated in 1972, her father, Jack Reid, began working with Arlene to create an art gallery for the School. Tragically, as a Skidmore senior in 1975, Anne died in a car accident. Arlene and Jack put their heads together and the new PDS gallery became the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery, which has been instrumental in helping to spread Anne’s passion for the arts to many generations. Anne's classmate and friend Jody Erdman ’72 has been a leading force for art appreciation as Director of the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery since 2001.
