Open Gallery Exhibitions

Art Lab offers artists exhibition space in the Art Lab Gallery. Art Lab is dedicated to providing opportunities for exhibitions of the work of students, faculty, emerging artists, established artists, and community groups.

Art Lab seeks community involvement in the gallery and typically hosts 2-3 open call shows per year where members of the community are invited to participate regardless of student status or artistic level of skill. One standing show is our Open Show which recently celebrated its 20th year.
