Online Exhibitions

Note: for Autumn quarter AY21 and extending until further notice, Open Studios and Class Exhibitions will be virtual.

Open Studios

At the end of fall and winter quarters, the department hosts an "Open Studios" event for art practice courses to showcase work that was created during that quarter. This is intended to be a rough and ready showcase of student work displayed in the very environment in which it is made, not a finished exhibition. It’s a teaser and a taste of the range of work that can be produced by the tools available to the student and with the materials at hand.

Faculty are encouraged to incorporate the Open Studios into their syllabus. To participate, please email Gabriel Harrison (gharr@stanford.edu) beginning Monday, November 9th. You will be granted access to a box folder for your class to place your student work into. The last day to add files will be the final day of classes, Friday, November 20th.

Please include the following information in the folder:

  • Course title
  • Course description
  • Instructor name
  • Student names
  • Images of student work at a minimum of 72dpi.
  • Any video work must be uploaded to YouTube/Vimeo and a link provided
  • Social media information including student websites, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Class Exhibitions

To arrange a virtual class exhibitions, faculty should contact the Gallery & Exhibitions Manager during the first three weeks of the quarter.  No exhibitions are permitted without a confirmed reservation. Once confirmed, faculty and lecturers are encouraged to include the exhibition as part of their class syllabus. Please note that priority is given on a first-come, first-serve basis, as space becomes available, and is typically limited to student work created within the department during the current quarter.

Class exhibitions will be in one of the following departmental galleries:

  • Mohr Gallery (basement level)
  • Ground Floor Critique Room (across from the Coulter Gallery)
  • Vitrine Gallery (directly across from the office)
  • Gunn Foyer (the lobby across from the office)

If you’d like to arrange a virtual exhibition in one of these spaces, submit your request by Friday, October 2nd, 2020, to Gabriel Harrison (gharr@stanford.edu). The exhibition will be launched the last week of classes, and will require that you upload all the student work to a box folder by Monday, November 2nd.

Please include the following information in your virtual exhibition request:

  • Course title
  • Course description
  • Instructor name
  • Student names
  • Images of student work at a minimum of 72dpi.
  • Any video work must be uploaded to YouTube/Vimeo and a link provided
  • Social media information including student websites, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Individual class exhibitions are an opportunity, not a requirement.
