Real World Experience

The Amelie A. Wallace Gallery at SUNY College at Old Westbury
The Amelie A. Wallace Gallery was founded in 1981 as part of the Visual Arts program of SUNY College at Old Westbury. It is the College's main exhibition space and its events are free and open to the public. This large and handicapped accessible gallery consists of three levels with a total area of over 2200 square feet.

It shows the work of internationally and nationally recognized artists as well as the members of the faculty and student body of the College. In addition to fine art exhibitions, the gallery also presents exhibitions of historical and documentary scope. High quality work is emphasized with a balanced multi-cultural and mixed media program that draws upon the rich artistic and cultural resources of Long Island, New York City and upstate New York.

Beyond the realm of exhibitions, the Amelie A. Wallace Gallery offers artists' talks and demonstrations, symposia, panel discussions and educational programs geared towards the College community and the larger Nassau County community. Informal receptions are held allowing students and members of the community to meet artists and discuss their work. The Wallace Gallery is regularly reviewed by the New York Times.
