The Cathy and Jesse Marion Art Gallery in the Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center is dedicated to the presentation of educationally supportive exhibitions for the benefit of SUNY art students, the campus at large, and the local community. The gallery also serves the in-house needs of the Fredonia Department of Visual Arts with exhibits of recent work by students and faculty. Graduating senior thesis shows are held at the conclusion of each semester.
Exhibitions of work by professional artists from off campus are also shown in the Cathy and Jesse Marion Art Gallery. All media and thematic subjects are considered. Each exhibition is widely promoted both on campus and off with news releases and announcement cards. Shows open with a catered reception for both students and the public at large.
Artists interested in being considered for an exhibition are invited to submit representative images of their work and a current resume to:

The Emmitt Christian Gallery is on the second floor of the Rockefeller Arts Center. This small gallery is devoted to the exhibition of student works. Each semester a series of one week long shows feature the works of advanced art students in all media. Occasional group shows of work done for a specific course are included in the sequence. Students must prepare the space, design the installation, hang the show, create publicity and host their own reception. This experience serves as preparation for professional exhibitions after graduation.
