Our Art Gallery brings local, regional and national exhibitions to the campus, providing students and classes with an important research and learning tool. The gallery provides exposure to diverse works of art and ranges of artistic expression representing a variety of art forms, styles, periods, purposes, and locales. The gallery works in conjunction with art and other academic programs to show how art functions in a cultural context, whether contemporary or historical. Many student shows are also scheduled throughout the year, including the Senior Art Majors Exhibition and the Annual Juried Student Exhibition.

Current Exhibition

2020 Faculty Biennial

September 8 – October 15 | Hours are by appointment only at this time.

About the space

The Art Gallery has approximately 130 lineal feet of display area, and is divided into a central gallery and two smaller adjacent wings. Clerestory windows located approximately 30 feet above the central gallery allow natural light to flood the gallery. Alternately, specially fitted blinds can block the natural light if a more controlled environment is desired.

Gallery Management

The Gallery Management course is an upper division course offered through the Department of Art & Design. This internship, in association with the Art Gallery, allows students to experience all aspects of gallery work, from developing publicity to designing and installing the exhibitions.
