Check out more than two decades of exhibitions that have come to the Lore Degenstein Gallery.
We present work in four professional exhibitions and one student exhibition each year. All are free and open to the public.
Our annual national juried Figurative Drawing and Painting Competition holds a prominent place in the exhibition schedule and has been instrumental in building our permanent collection of contemporary figurative art.
Traveling exhibitions are hosted from time to time, and we also periodically exhibit items from our extensive French poster collection.
The gallery is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. daily except during university breaks.
