The Emory Train Depot is home of The 1912 Gallery, which features rotating art exhibits by national and regional artists. Emory & Henry College sponsors temporary exhibits by emerging and nationally acclaimed artists who work from a variety of philosophical perspectives. These visiting artists actively interact with art students during their campus visits, which also include a major lecture delivered as part of the college's LYCEUM program.
The 1912 Gallery features three artists each semester. These temporary exhibits are by emerging and nationally acclaimed artists. Artalks, conversations with the artists about their lives and inspiration, are held in conjunction with the exhibits. Exhibits and Artalks are free and open to the public.
Jerry Uelsmann, Jack Beal, Virginia Scotchie, Cora Cohen, Richard Jolley, Tom Nakashima, Jennifer Pepper, Anne Austin Pearce, Cort Savage, Barbara Tisserat, James McGarrell, Willie Anne Wright, and Jake Berthot have served as visiting artists. The gallery has also featured work by Harvey Littleton, Janet Fish, Dale Chihuly, and Sally Mann.
