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.

12th Annual Figurative Drawing and Painting Exhibition

Nov. 6 – Dec. 12, 2021

Susquehanna University’s 12th annual Juried Figurative Drawing and Painting Exhibition will open with a reception at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, in the Lore Degenstein Gallery in the Charles B. Degenstein Campus Center.

This event is free and open to the public. 

This national, juried visual art competition and exhibition is open to two-dimensional figurative artists (referencing the human figure) over the age of 18 working in painting, drawing, printmaking or fiber.

Anne Harris, an artist and instructor at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, is this year’s juror. Harris has exhibited at venues ranging from the Alexandre Gallery, DC Moore Gallery and Nielsen Gallery, to the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian Institute, The Portland Museum of Art, the California Center for Contemporary Art and the North Dakota Museum of Art. Her work is in public collections at Harvard and Yale universities and The New York Public Library.

It’s time to take a step back from everything. It’s time to reflect.

The senior graphic design and studio art majors at Susquehanna University invite you to take a moment to see just what can be accomplished through hard work and dedication. In creating the showcase, they have refelced on their identities as designers and artists, as individuals, and on their growth over the past four years.

“This is a reflection of us.”
