Located in the Baker Center, Trisolini Gallery hosts invitational exhibitions of national and international artists and in the spring semester presents Graduate and BFA student thesis exhibitions. The Trisolini Gallery serves two primary functions for the School of Art students and community: it hosts capstone exhibitions for our graduate and undergraduate students, and work by our distinguished faculty and alumni, and it serves as part of the cultural “face” of the university. The work that is shown is evidence of the quality of thinking and innovation that goes on at Ohio University. These shows have an impact on recruiting, on alumni relations and faculty development, as well as on the nature of the education of all those who see the work across the campus and throughout the Athens community.

Seigfred Hall, 4th floor
The Cube 4 Gallery provides undergraduate artists with an experimental space in which to show their work. The gallery is dedicated to allowing artists to explore and expand on their ideas without the conventional boundaries of the classroom. Located on the fourth floor of Seigfred Hall, the gallery is run by the Undergraduate Art League (UAL). The School of Art + Design encourages all students to periodically stop by the fourth floor and check out new exhibitions from upcoming artists.



The Undergraduate Art League (UAL)

The Undergraduate Art League, founded in 1978 as a non-profit student service organization, is a collaborative entity made up of students working together to unify the arts community. The UAL works hard to provide students opportunities within the arts, such as managing the student gallery, CUBE 4, helping with the Undergraduate Juried Exhibition in Fall semester, bringing visiting artists to do workshops in the Spring, and by providing a mentorship program between upper and lower classmen. The UAL is a great way to get involved in the arts community and it is a fantastic opportunity for those interested in future artistic endeavors after graduation.
The UAL meets weekly.  Please ‘like’ us on facebook and check for the updated schedule of meetings and events: UAL on facebook
