The University Art Gallery presents exhibitions of contemporary art to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors from surrounding communities. These exhibitions are intended to foster intellectual engagement and conversation beyond the classroom, and a campus culture that welcomes diversity.

Each academic year the University Art Gallery presents five major exhibitions, bringing to campus a wide range of media, ideas, and artistic practices.  One exhibition each season features the current work of one of the accomplished members of our studio faculty. The final show each spring presents the work of Sewanee’s graduating senior art majors.  The three other exhibitions held each year bring to campus regionally, nationally and internationally recognized artists.
