The Amelie A. Wallace Gallery exhibits paintings, sculpture, photographs, and mixed media by professional artists (including faculty) and students of the Visual Arts Department. Lectures and discussions with the exhibiting artists are scheduled in conjunction with the opening of shows in the Gallery.
Located in the College's Campus Center, the Gallery’s three levels, connected by ramps, feature nearly three thousand square feet of exhibit space, plus track lighting that can be adjusted to highlight the displays. The center level opens onto an outdoor sculpture court that can be used to house outdoor displays. The entire facility is supported by two adjacent rooms for preparation and storage of exhibit materials.
"Paradox of Constructed Nature: The Faculty Show 2020"
Exhibit runs from February 6 – March 9, 2020
The Amelie A. Wallace Gallery is pleased to announce “Paradox of Constructed Nature: The Faculty Show 2020,"with works by nine adjunct faculty members of the Visual Arts Department at SUNY Old Westbury. The title of the exhibition refers to the seeming contradictions and incongruities revealed in the constructed nature of these artists’ subjects and the materials. This impressive collection of works showcases the significant contribution these artists make to the Visual Arts Department and the role models they offer to our would-be artist students. Equally impressive is the diversity of these faculty members’ personal identities, as they represent multiple cultures, ethnicities, and countries of origin.
Further details related to the exhibition and the artists are available on the exhibition's event page.
The Gallery was formally dedicated to Amelie A. Wallace of Garden City on May 22, 1979. The late Mrs. Wallace, a member of the Old Westbury College Council from 1974 to 1980, was honored for her unflagging interest in the College and the State University as well as support of the arts at Old Westbury.
