Student Art

In Galleries

In addition to the digital gallery on this website, student artwork may be seen in several galleries on campus during the academic year. Owen Hall is the home of the Department of Art and Art History and houses two galleries: the largest is the S. Tucker Cooke Gallery located on the first floor and the smaller gallery is located on the second floor. Student work periodically may be exhibited in the Highsmith University and Intercultural Gallery in the Highsmith Union Hall or in one of two galleries in the D. Hiden Ramsey Library—the Blowers Gallery (on the main level) or the Special Collections Gallery (on the third floor).

As part of the Senior Capstone Requirements, all BFA students must present a solo exhibition and the BA students participate in a Group Exhibition; usually the exhibitions are in one of the aforementioned galleries or occasionally, a student exhibition will be held off campus. A few times a year, all students are given the opportunity to enter large group exhibitions in the S. Tucker Cooke Gallery and the Highsmith University and Intercultural Gallery. Additionally, during the fall and spring semesters, various work completed as class assignments line the walls on the first and second floors in Owen Hall.
