Elaine Bailey Augustine Art Gallery

About the Gallery

Managed by the Department of Visual Arts and Design, with support from the School of the Arts and the College of Arts and Sciences, the Elaine Bailey Augustine Art Gallery is an indispensable tool of instruction for student artists. It provides a significant contemporary art and cultural asset to the Northwest Alabama community. Essential to these goals, the annual exhibition program presents a broad spectrum of media, techniques, and artistic and social content, striving to reflect the complexity and diversity of today’s contemporary art world. The gallery offers installations by nationally and regionally recognized artists throughout the academic year in multiple sites. The University community and the Shoals area are enriched through experiencing art. Public lectures, workshops, and seminars conducted by visiting artists are open to the public. Guided tours are provided to visiting groups for local P–12 schools on request.
