Gallery of Art’s Mission Statement

Fontbonne University Gallery of Art’s mission is to encourage and support the artist and the education of the visual arts in the community through its exhibitions and programs.

We value the artist and their work by promoting and supporting them through exhibitions, gallery talks, education and outreach programs.  We want to help build audiences for the artist’s work by providing the community with a venue to view quality art.  We believe in creating an educational environment for both the artist and audience to interact for a more personal experience of art.  

We serve Artists - young, emerging, and professional; Art Viewers - novice, those seeking more knowledge and experience of the arts; Art Collector; and Special Populations.  We reach out to these communities by providing professional art programs and encouraging the participation of art through a variety of learning opportunities.

The Gallery renovation was generously funded by the Fontbonne Community Connection January 2011.  The Figure Now Exhibition was the first exhibition in the new space.
