The Visual Arts Gallery

The Visual Arts Gallery is an elegant 1600 square foot exhibition space that displays the work of the Department of Fine Arts' faculty and students. Curated exhibitions include regional, national and internationally recognized artists in all media.

The Visual Arts Gallery also serves as a learning laboratory for students interested in gallery practices. Coursework offered through the Department of Fine Arts utilizes the space in support of the new Gallery Management A.A. degree. Students learn exhibition design, registration methods, art handling, lighting, labeling, publicity and experience the satisfaction of seeing a project grow from conception to actuality.
