The Le Moyne College Art Club provides an opportunity for the student body and faculty to further their creative pursuits, and it leads to the aesthetic enhancement of the entire college. Club activities explore many facets of art – including drawing, painting and photography – through participation and display. As such, the Art Club serves as a supplement to the Le Moyne College fine arts department and as a creative organization for social interaction and expression. The activities of the club culminate in an annual student art show in the Le Moyne College library during the spring semester.
Wilson Art Gallery
From its beginning in 1965, the Art Gallery has been affiliated with the College's Library. In 1981, the Art Gallery moved to the new Library facility, and was named the Wilson Art Gallery in honor of Mr. Jerome Wilson, who was chief of the fund raising campaign for the new Library.
Administered by the College Art Gallery Committee, it serves both the Le Moyne College and local communities. Art works of primarily local artists are exhibited in the Gallery. Prospective exhibitors may apply to the Wilson Art Gallery Committee by calling 445-4323, and submitting portfolios which consist of their vitae, list of previous exhibits, slides or photographs of their works, reviews, etc. The committee juries the works on the basis of merit and need for varieties of media. It schedules the exhibits one and a half to two years in advance.
Le Moyne students are given the opportunity to display their art work at the annual Student Art Show sponsored by the College Art Club. The president of the Art Club is a liaison officer for the Wilson Art Gallery. The Fine Arts Department helps in organizing the student show at the end of the school year.
The Gallery is open during regular Library hours when an exhibit is on display. For hours please call 445-4153.
