Hello Watkins Gallery supporters,

The Watkins Gallery has a very, very modest budget to exhibit work by our students and by visiting artists. If you can find it in your heart (and wallet) to give a few bucks to the College of Liberal Arts, those funds will support the gallery and learning initiatives connected to the gallery in other disciplines. Please consider donating. We deeply appreciate your support of the gallery and our college.

Join me and make a gift to Engaged Learning for the Liberal Arts

It was such a privilege to work with five awesome artists (Kenneth Tham, Olivia VanDenBerge, Jesse Peterson, Fiona Larson, and Dana Langworthy) in this exhibition. Enjoy.

P.S.- come check out the latest exhibition of senior work called "Roots"!

Calling all you art lovers out there,

There is a brand new show up starting today that lasts through this week. It is the newest Senior Group Exhibition (Fluid Studio) and it is filled with some of the latest work by artists Fiona Larson, Kenneth Tham, Kieran McDonnell, Jesse Peterson, Olivia VanDenBerge, and Dana Langworthy. Friends with any of these people? Then congratulate them and see their work. The show revolves around the artist's individual journeys of personal growth as art majors through college as well as reflections on themselves as individuals. Come see this remarkable show before it's too late.
