Fred Parker Giles Gallery

The Fred Parker Giles Gallery, named for a distinguished past Professor of Art, is located off the main lobby of the Campbell Building and is the most important venue for the display of art in Richmond. Spacious, well-lit, and flexible, the gallery extends through two levels and can accommodate large or even multiple exhibits. Curated by faculty of the Department in rotation on an annual basis, the gallery changes exhibits approximately once a month.

The gallery's schedule throughout the year includes installations of faculty and student work from Eastern, in particular the BFA student show each term, as well as collections on loan from other schools in the region or traveling exhibits engaged from artists and other sources throughout the country.
