The UConn Stamford Art Gallery

The mission of the UConn Stamford Art Gallery is to offer a welcoming environment that attracts artists and members of the community to high caliber exhibitions and programs. The Gallery supports the University's educational mission by stimulating active learning and dialogue about the arts and the creative process. The Gallery is a large, inviting space located off the Main Concourse, which serves as the heart of the campus, located in downtown Stamford, with easy access to parking and public transportation. Visitors enter the Gallery from the Concourse or from a second entrance that is visible from Washington Boulevard and lit by a dramatic three-story light spine. The Gallery is approximately 25 feet wide by 70 feet long.

Gallery exhibits. UConn Stamford Gallery exhibits both emerging and established artists, with a special emphasis on the works and themes of traditionally underrepresented groups, local/regional artists, interdisciplinary artworks, and diverse mediums and perspectives.

Gallery operations.The Gallery is governed by an Advisory Board comprised of individuals from the UConn and arts communities. The Board selects artists, groups, and collections for exhibition on a rolling basis. The Gallery hosts approximately eight shows per year, including an annual juried photography show, one or more group shows by local guilds or artist collectives, themed exhibits, and solo shows. At the artist's discretion, exhibited works are available for sale; the Gallery requires a modest commission in the form of a contribution to The University.
