Studio Facilities


Painting and Drawing

Painting classrooms and studios offer abundant natural and artificial daylight-balanced light. Large decks on the Northern and Southern sides of the building allow for outdoor work.


Sculpture and Ceramics

Our woodshop is fully equipped and frequently upgraded and improved. We offer industrial-grade machines and are dedicated to investing in new technologies and methods of fabrication.

You can find the Spring 2017 Woodshop Open Hours here.

Ceramics offers industrial level machines including 24 electric wheels, slab rollers, Brent Extruders, a Ball Mill and a walk-in spray booth. We also maintain two gas kilns (24 and 48 cubic feet), 11 electric kilns (2-12 cubic feet), a coffin kiln (16 cubic feet), and a raku setup. Our plaster room is fully equipped for industrial slip casting and houses two electric plaster wheels and a slip mixer.

Exhibition Space

Gallery 102


The mission of Gallery 102, the department's student-run art space, is to provide a platform for students to present work, practice curatorial strategies, and learn how to produce and install exhibitions.
All students have the opportunity to participate in the Gallery 102 Committee. Students from a range of disciplines and stages of study—graduate and undergraduate, majors and non-majors, Fine Arts and Art History—collaborate with one another and faculty members to present shows throughout the year.
