The Janalyn Hanson White Gallery serves as a special venue to showcase student capstone projects, local high school talent and the work of many other regional and national artists and exhibitors.

Thanks to a generous endowment from the Tim and Jan White Family, The Janalyn Hanson White Gallery in lower McAuley Hall was recently renovated. Since the gallery is intended as a teaching tool, we invite artists of national reputation who work in a variety of media. These artists often come to meet with students and give a lecture during the exhibit's opening reception. In recent months, exhibitions of painting, drawing, digital video interactive works, installation, fiber arts, printmaking, sculpture and video by artists from New York City, Chicago, Minneapolis, Mexico, and London have been on display in the gallery.
