The John and June Allcott Gallery has a three-tiered mission: (1) to exhibit the work of professional artists, (2) to exhibit faculty work, and (3) to provide exhibition opportunities for students. A faculty committee plans and manages the gallery exhibitions with the help of Graduate Assistants. Assistants gain professional experience by participating in all facets of the gallery’s operations. The Gallery is named for former Art Department Chair, John Allcott, and his wife, artist June Allcott. It was created through a generous gift from the Allcott family. In addition to the June and John Allcott Gallery, the Department also has created the Allcott Undergraduate Gallery, which is dedicated to exhibitions planned and mounted by undergraduate studio art students. More information about current exhibitions can be found on our events page here.
