Department of Art, Art History and Design


The mission of the O’Connor Art Gallery is to present the Dominican University academic community with timely, relevant and focused contemporary art exhibitions that foster critical and thoughtful dialogue across disciplines.  Exhibitions are curated with the student body in mind, as they are meant to introduce students to new and innovative artistic concepts, practices and strategies.  Located in Lewis Hall, steps from many of the art department’s studios and classrooms, the gallery is particularly accessible to art students as a space for intimate engagement and reflection. 

In addition to at least three curated exhibitions per year, the gallery is also the site of an annual juried student show and senior thesis exhibitions. The gallery is located on the fourth floor of Lewis Hall and is open to the public during the academic year.

Upcoming Exhibit:
March 13 -30, 2013
ANNUAL is a juried student art exhibition that is open to all currently enrolled Dominican University students. Students may submit up to 5 works of art to be considered for this years guest juror, Karen Azarnia. Several awards will be given to chosen works of art at the top of their discipline.
