Welcome to the Villanova University Art Gallery. We are a not-for-profit campus gallery whose mission is to present high quality exhibits by new, emerging, and established artists from around the world.
Over the years, guest artists exhibiting at the gallery have come from as far away as Kuwait and as close to home as Philadelphia. The gallery has hosted exhibits of traditional watercolors from China,
carved masks and totems from the Yoruba culture of West Africa, Batiks from Belorussia, and handcrafted ceramics and glassware from Italy. We have served as an inaugural venue for young artists and provided
an exhibition space for talented older citizens whose discovery of the artist within came much later in life. All exhibits are open to the public and are free of charge.
The public is cordially invited to all artists' receptions. We welcome the opportunity to put new names and addresses on our mailing list in order to let you know of special events, such as free demonstrations by exhibiting artists, and other programs. Chinese masters have shared their ages old watercolor and calligraphy techniques, and a Belorussian master his batik-making skills.
Group tours of gallery exhibits are available free of charge.
Come visit us. Blessings,
Rev. Richard G. Cannuli, O.S.A., Director
