University Galleries is comprised of three art galleries that play an integral role in the teaching mission of the School of Art + Art History, College of the Arts at the University of Florida, as well as serving the entire UF and Gainesville community. For the 2015-2016 academic year we have 17 varied exhibitions featuring the talent of our students, faculty and alumni. All exhibitions include an opening reception featuring refreshments and live music. We hope you will join us!
University Gallery, located at the intersection of SW 13th Street and SW 4th Avenue, presents primarily contemporary exhibitions that rotate every two to eight weeks. For the past 14 years University Gallery has collaborated with myriad UF colleges, community and regional entities in creating a trans-disciplinary venue for the visual arts. Exhibitions feature nationally/internationally known artists in the fall, and an annual studio art faculty exhibition, juried student art show and two MFA graduating thesis project shows in the spring. The 3,000-square-foot space is a lively, exciting venue that is utilized for many events throughout the academic year.
The Gary R. Libby Gallery is an 850-square-foot space that presents student-curated exhibitions featuring student, alumni and Florida/regional artists. This venue also features special projects for university-wide faculty members and students. The Gary R. Libby Gallery is located adjacent to the lobby of the School of Art + Art History’s Fine Art Building C.
University Galleries is dedicating the former Focus Gallery to be renamed Gary R. Libby Gallery, in conjunction with the Alumni Invitational Exhibition on Friday, September 18, 2015, our 50th anniversary year.
Grinter Gallery is located in the lobby entry area of Grinter Hall, which houses Graduate School offices, and the Centers for Latin American Studies and African Studies. Its mission is to present art and artifacts by international and multicultural artists through student curated exhibitions.
