ASIS Gallery—Sage Art Center
Gallery Hours:
9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday
2:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m., Saturday & Sunday
During the academic year ASIS maintains a rotating exhibition of works by students currently enrolled in studio classes; the space provides a site conducive to effective critique and separate from the production space. ASIS is also one of the primary venues for the exhibition required of undergraduate studio majors. As an extracurricular activity, undergraduate students occasionally conceptualize thematically-based exhibitions and follow through with all aspects of gallery operations, from installation to advertising and reception planning. Since exhibitions address work in progress and are, therefore, influenced by class assignments, schedules are established on a month to month basis. See Sage Art Center for current show information.
