    How it Works

    The gallery presents 5–8 exhibitions each academic year, spanning September through May. Exhibitions are selected 12–24 months in advance. Exhibitions are selected from outside proposals representing local, national and international artists. The last exhibition of the year is reserved for the annual Senior Juried Art Exhibition, which showcases the talent and work of the St. Kate's graduating studio art majors.
