These artists often lecture, demonstrate, and present workshops for students and the community in conjunction with their exhibition at the gallery. Gallery space is also allocated for student and art faculty exhibitions, including the annual juried and baccalaureate shows. The Gray Gallery is a cultural and educational resource for students and the surrounding community.
