Art Gallery


MCA Art Gallery

The E&H Art Gallery hosts rotating visual arts exhibits by emerging and nationally acclaimed artists. Artist who works are wide array of quality art media and philosophies with the primary intent of introducing exhibitions not normally seen in our region. 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 rotating schedule features three artists each semester.

As part of the academic program of Emory & Henry College, the gallery presents and interprets fine and decorative arts, providing knowledge, ideas and a resource for learning, research, and life critical to a liberal arts education for the College’s students, faculty and staff, as well as to the region's communities and visitors. The Gallery offers educational programs, including lectures, seminars, demonstrations, traditional and electronic publications, and innovative outreach activities, providing a valuable study center to educate, inspire, and increase understanding of art. The Gallery staff and Arts Exhibition and Collections Committee (AECC) develop, preserve, research and exhibit the permanent collection of art, which represents an emphasis on contemporary art.

Upcoming Exhibit: Colleen Fitzgerald

Exciting One Night Only Pop-Up Artalk & Pop up Exhibit: Monday, February 15, 2016, 7:30 PM 

Fitzgerald is captivated by the element of chance, chaos, and the collapse and failure of systems. The conflation of order and disorder, as well as creation and destruction, are significant recurring themes throughout her work. In the seriesTreatment, she metaphorically treats unexposed photographic film as if it is itself a body in need of care by combining it directly with various medicines and healing processes. Some of the substances and processes to which the film is subjected include infrared heat therapy, antibiotics, concentrated sodium fluoride, and pain medication.
