Campus Art Galleries

ASIS Gallery at the Sage Art Center

The Sage Art Center is located at 835 Wilson Blouvard and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

During the academic year ASIS maintains a rotating exhibition of works by students currently enrolled in studio classes. The space provides a site conducive to effective critique and separate from the production space.

ASIS is also one of the primary venues for the exhibition required of undergraduate studio majors. As an extracurricular activity, undergraduate students occasionally conceptualize thematically-based exhibitions and follow through with all aspects of gallery operations, from installation to advertising and reception planning.

Since exhibitions show work in progress and are, therefore, influenced by class assignments, schedules are established on a month to month basis. See the Sage Art Center website for current show information.

Frontispace

Frontispace is located on the ground floor of Rush Rhees Library at the entrance of the Art and Music Library. Hours for Frontispace are the same as those for the Art and Music Library.

Frontispace engages the UR community with thought-provoking exhibitions. The gallery’s year-round schedule and summer residency program stimulate dialogue and connect the university to the broader Western New York artistic landscape, with a focus on local and emerging artists working in a variety of media. The gallery also serves the Art and Art History Department by hosting special exhibitions of work by visiting artists, seniors, and alumni.

You can contact Megan Metté at megan.mette@rochester.edu with any questions.  

Hartnett Gallery

The Hartnett Gallery is on the second floor of Wilson Commons and is open during Wilson Common's standard business hours when the gallery is putting on an exhbit. The gallery is closed if no exhibit is going on.  

The University of Rochester's Hartnett Gallery is a student-supported, professional art gallery showing contemporary work from national and international artists. Hartnett presents six to seven exhibitions each academic year including the Annual Juried Student Exhibition.

This unique gallery space was built, along with Wilson Commons, by renowned architect I.M. Pei in 1972. Hartnett Gallery is funded, in part, by the venture fund from the president at the University of Rochester.
