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 Bobick Gallery located on the first floor of the Humanities Building is the primary space for professional art exhibitions featuring regional, national and international artists, often with accompanying lectures and gallery talks.

Hours: Monday-Friday 9am-4pm. Closed weekends and University holidays. 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.

Gallery 2 and the Atrium Gallery (Humanities) along with the VAB Gallery (Visual Arts Building) serve primarily as gallery spaces for students and classes and are 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 Building at 25 Jefferson Street, the gallery is in proximity to UWG’s Newnan campus.
