About the Gallery

Brief History of the Gallery

The University Art Gallery has been in operation since the establishment of Stanislaus State in 1965. Historically, the UAG has mounted a program of changing exhibitions during the academic year (September through May). Major accomplishments are linked with our commitment to increase, gradually and continually, the quality of exhibitions and programs of interest to the students and the public in the surrounding valley. Documentation of a selection of these exhibitions occurs through quality and scholarly exhibition catalogues as a valuable resource to students and a promotional and public document for the gallery and its archives. In addition, during the 1990s the University received donations of works of art, which constitute the University Fine Art Collection, a study collection for Art and Art History students as well as other interested members from the community.
