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. We are now accepting entries for our Tenth Annual National Figurative Drawing and Painting Exhibition. Download the entry form.
Traveling exhibitions are hosted from time to time, and we also periodically exhibit items from our extensive French poster collection.
The gallery is closed for the summer and will reopen on Sept. 1.
The Quickening Image
Sept. 1–Oct. 7
The wax-resist drawings of David Dodge Lewis and Ephraim Rubenstein chronicle a new way to draw. Wax-resist drawing is a layered, large-scale, mixed-media approach that utilizes wax as a resist for subsequent ink and charcoal washes. It incorporates both wet and dry materials, as well as linear and painterly elements. The process allows for carefully rendered passages alongside more spontaneous and chaotic applications.
Opening reception Sept. 1, 7–9 p.m.
Oct. 20–Dec. 9

Sue Coe is a contemporary English artist noted for her intensely political graphic illustrations and activism. Born in 1951 in Staffordshire, England, she grew up near a slaughterhouse, which helped instill a lifelong passion for animal rights activism. This political sensibility characterizes Coe's work, which often explicitly makes animal rights and other social issues its central subject. The artist uses painting, printmaking and a realistic drawing style to depict cruelty against animals, sweatshops, prisons, AIDS, war and anti-capitalism throughout her work.
Opening reception Jan. 26, 7–9 p.m.
