About the Art Exhibition Program

The mission of the art exhibition program is to act as a conduit for educational excellence and community engagement. We are dedicated to the promotion and understanding of art by providing a forum to promote intellectual inquiry that generates curiosity by provoking public debate on the cultural and social issues of our times.

Galleries

The Humanities Building (former home of the Bobick Gallery) is currently under renovation. The new Library Gallery is located on the third floor of the Ingram Library.

Hours: Monday-Thursday 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and Saturday 1-5 p.m. NOTE: These hours may change on holidays, breaks, and for inclement weather. Visitor parking is available in the lot between Humanities and TLC on West Georgia Drive. Art Galleries and events are free and open to the public.

The VAB Gallery (Visual Arts Building) serves primarily as gallery space for students and classes and is dedicated to the experimentation and development of student artists as they successfully progress toward their professional careers.

Located throughout the campus grounds, the Sculpture on Campus Program includes rotating exhibitions of sculpture from some of the most exciting artists working today.

The Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series brings creative and talented individuals to campus for one to three days to interact with students and faculty, creating opportunities for demonstrations and discourse.

The Vault Gallery is a collaboration between UWG's School of the Arts, the Newnan Artist-in-Residence Program, and the City of Newnan itself, and will be open to the public on a limited basis throughout the year and feature diverse art exhibitions of community interest. Located in the Wadsworth Auditorium Building at 25 Jefferson Street, the gallery is in proximity to UWG’s Newnan campus.
