DeVries Student Gallery

The Eleanor R. and Robert A. DeVries Gallery is the Frostic School of Art's student exhibition space. It is a professional exhibition space, and therefore a rare and special opportunity for our students to showcase their work. Student exhibitions are scheduled each week throughout the semester. 

The DeVries Student Gallery is an important component of the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program. Students create a body of work during their final year of the program and mount a graduation thesis exhibition in order to be awarded a B.F.A. degree in Art.

Submissions for B.F.A. Exhibitions

B.F.A. candidates must have the permission of their committee chair and be enrolled in the ART 4930 Graduation Preparation class to be considered for a B.F.A. exhibition. Exhibitions are scheduled one semester in advance. Signed exhibition proposal forms must be submitted to the director of the student art gallery during the semester prior to the semester of the exhibition.

Submissions for Non-Degree Exhibitions

Students must have faculty sponsorship in order to be considered for an exhibition. B.F.A. candidates have priority. If there are open exhibition dates after all B.F.A. candidates are scheduled, non-degree shows can be scheduled to fill those spots. Signed exhibition proposal forms must be submitted to the director of the student art gallery during the semester prior to the semester of the exhibition.
