The Fine Arts Center galleries at WKU, curated and maintained by the Department of Art, comprise the main, two-story University Gallery and the newly developed 2D and 3D Corridor galleries, opened in 2006. Between sixteen and twenty-two shows a year are exhibited in the three galleries.
The Galleries exhibit shows by local, national and international artists. Traditional media such as painting and printmaking along with the more recently developed fields of video and installation work are represented. The mission of providing a range of work that appeals to the general education student with limited knowledge of art theory and history to showing work that challenges the advanced art students is taken very seriously, and variety is considered when choosing the Gallery schedules.
A major mission of the Gallery is also to provide students in the art department with professional exhibition space and support. This space is crucial both for students to learn to effectively show their work as well as to allow members of all departments the opportunity to view student research.
An additional aim of the Galleries is to provide the University and wider Bowling Green community direct access not only to artists' work, but also to their ideas and processes. Whenever possible, the Gallery extends and supports an invitation for an exhibiting artist to come to campus and deliver a workshop, demonstration or lecture.
