Statement of Intent

Statement of Purpose

The student gallery on 100 East Franklin Street, tentatively called the Artery, has been established by members of the Kappa Pi Art and Art History Honorary Fraternity as a public venue for displaying work, particularly by undergraduate artists. The gallery is non-profit; for each sale the artist will receive the majority of the proceeds, a commission will be paid to the owner of the property, and the remainder will be given to Kappa Pi for maintenance of the gallery space. Additionally, the gallery will provide a venue for arts collaboration with other groups on campus and in the community. Student Friends of the Ackland has expressed interest in curating a show, and the gallery will be involved in events like the Second Friday Art Walk.
The gallery represents a valuable opportunity for students; Studio Art majors will have an opportunity to exhibit their work and Art History majors will have an opportunity to design exhibits or work in a gallery. The Art Department’s two majors are viewed by many students as distant and autonomous. The gallery could provide a means for students from both majors to work together and with involved faculty and artists in the community.
