Check out more than two decades of exhibitions that have come to the Lore Degenstein Gallery.
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.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our annual Figurative Drawing and Painting Competition will not be held this year.
The gallery is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. daily except during university breaks.
“I AM 400” The Art of Jerome & Jeromyah Jones
This powerful exhibition, created by artists Jerome W. Jones, Jr. and his son, Jeromyah Jones, highlights the 400-year history of Africans in America from 1619 to 2019. It explores not only the suffering but also the successes of African Americans. On display are 62 paintings and a banner entitled “I AM 400”, commemorating the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in colonial North America. The exhibition offers a unique experience of walking through the milestones of notable African Americans who have made a lasting contribution to American culture.
