Welcome to the University Galleries at Saint Joseph's University

Through the promotion of the visual arts, the University Galleries educate and serve the University's students, faculty and staff, as well as the diverse communities of the surrounding tri-state area. The Merion Hall Gallery hosts seven shows from September through August. The first six feature professional artists, who are mostly but not exclusively from the area. (Proposals are accepted, please see below.) The seventh is the Senior Arts Thesis Exhibition that highlights the year-long projects of the Senior Art Majors. The Boland Hall gallery selects an alumnus to exhibit at the beginning of each school year. The remainder of the year focuses on student work. We also feature the work of our summer scholar students frequently throughout the year.
