About Us

HOURS

The University Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.  We are closed during all University semester breaks.

OBJECTIVE

Through the promotion of the visual arts, the University Gallery educates and serves the University's students, faculty and staff, as well as the diverse communities of the surrounding tri-state area. We host seven shows from September through August. The first six feature professional artists, who are mostly but not exclusively from the area. (Submission of CDs for consideration is open to the public, please see below.) The seventh is the Senior Arts Thesis Exhibition that highlights the year-long projects of the Senior Art Majors.

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS

The first six exhibitions are open to professional artists. If you would like to be considered for a show, please submit the following:
