The Department of Art and Art History presents a socially-distanced exhibition of select works from our Studio Art Faculty. Assembled quickly in these unusual circumstances of the pandemic, this exhibition is a rare opportunity to see the work of our faculty in conversation, and encompassing such varied media as ceramics, photography, performance, prints, and painting. We thank all of our faculty who have contributed to the show: a full list of artists and works is included below.

Due to the pandemic, all shows originally scheduled in the John and June Allcott Gallery for the 2020-2021 academic year have been postponed until 2021-2022. The gallery interior is closed for the duration of fall semester. Please enjoy the exhibition from outside the gallery.
