The Jewett Art Gallery is the extended teaching facility of the Studio Art Program.

The department hosts about nine exhibitions annually, which include faculty and student organized events, experimental, collaborative projects, and curated shows of work by visiting artists, culminating with a thesis show and senior majors exhibition.

In addition to the Main Gallery, several other spaces, such as the Corridor Galleries, the Visual Study Room, (a project space for new media), and the Sculpture Court (located on the third floor) are used for special exhibitions and experimental installation projects. The studio hallways of Jewett and Pendleton West often present informal displays of studio course work in progress. Receptions are held for every Main Gallery exhibition to celebrate and engage with the artists on view. Gallery talks and/or studio discussions are held in conjunction with many exhibits to further inform and provide an inside look at the artistic process. These events are free and open to all.
