About the Gallery

Sul Ross State University has maintained an art gallery on campus for the enjoyment of students, faculty, and the people in the surrounding community. Opened in the 1950's, the gallery serves well the primary objective: that of encouraging art students and providing public exposure. Another goal of the gallery is to provide cultural enrichment for this campus, the people of Alpine, and other area communities.

The gallery is also open to artists outside the university. Shows include single exhibitors and group exhibitions. One event in particular, the Annual Spring SRSU Student Art Show, hosts over 20 talented participants. This show is open to currently enrolled students at Sul Ross regardless of major. The 21.5' x 28.5' gallery space creates a sense of intimacy and ambiance for a myriad of exhibits.

The gallery space is lit by indirect track lighting which can be adjusted as needed. This enables the exhibitor to enhance each piece to his or her specifications.  The gallery is located on the first floor of the Francois Fine Arts Building.

Guest Artist Program

The Guest Artist Program brings artists to campus during the summer sessions to provide contacts with practicing artists. This program provides yet another unique dimension to Sul Ross. All non-student exhibitors are asked to donate 20 percent of sales to the Sul Ross Art Program Scholarship Fund.

Gallery is open 8:00am-5:00pm M-F

Located on the First Floor of the Francois Fine Arts Building, Room 102
