University of Dayton Galleries

Mission Statement

The primary mission of University of Dayton's Galleries is to provide space for the University of Dayton community of artists to experiment, develop, and implement new ideas while gaining educational gallery experience in professional standards and practices; curating, organizing and executing exhibitions with open engagement with the public. The University of Dayton Galleries will support exhibitions that develop from advanced and beginning student coursework to Alumni and Faculty projects, as well as supporting a robust program of visiting artists. The gallery space serves as a site for experiments in performative art, collaborative installation work and interdisciplinary visual research. University of Dayton's Galleries are an active showcase of what is happening in the world of visual art, the Department of Art and Design and our interactions with the community at large.

Get Together is an invitational exhibition meant to showcase the spirit of the Roger Glass Center for the Arts. The Roger Glass Center for the Arts is intended to be a gateway to the University of Dayton as well as a place or the community to come together; in this spirit the inaugural exhibition for the Roger Glass Center for the Arts Gallery will host Get Together, an invitational exhibition featuring the works of 90 local artists and arts professionals from the community with all major educational institutions participating as well as many local professional artists and community staples. The idea is to have everyone ‘get together’ to celebrate the new art center’s opening, and the arts community in general.get-together-postcard-front.png

Reception: 4-6 p.m., Feb. 29 at Index Gallery
Artist Talk: 2:45-3:45 p.m., Feb. 29 at The Hub

In Beginners Jenna Maurice and Adán De La Garza present video works made from their personal archive of footage shot when they were in their youth. Beginners puts forth two parallel histories working with personal archives in similar ways with vastly different results. Both works came out of the artist's youthful obsession with documenting different aspects of their lives and cultures in which they were embedded.
