DESCRIPTION

The UB Art Gallery at the Center for the Arts, located on North (Amherst) campus, was founded in 1994. The Center was designed by Gwathmey and Siegel Associates Architects, and features 5,000 square feet of exhibition space in its First Floor, Second Floor and Lightwell Galleries.

The UB Art Gallery’s core exhibition program consists of six to eight exhibitions a year, providing a dynamic forum for contemporary artists, as well as faculty and students across disciplines, to showcase research and artwork through exhibitions, projects and events.

Each spring semester, the annual Lightwell Project invites artists to directly respond to the striking architecture of this exceptional gallery. Featuring 740 square feet of exhibition space, the Lightwell’s walls extend upwards for forty feet, culminating in skylights that flood the gallery with natural light. A balcony on the second floor provides a dynamic aerial view of this distinctive space which spans two stories. By commissioning site-specific works, the UB Art Gallery furthers its commitment to the contemporary arts by offering emerging and mid-career artists an opportunity to work on an unprecedented scale and challenge their practice to move in unexpected directions.
