The Morrissey Gallery, named in honor of the Morrissey family, long-time supporters of St. Ambrose University, is a professional exhibition space for visual arts.
Established in the lobby of the Galvin Fine Arts Center in 2000, the gallery has featured art in a wide spectrum of media by artists from all over the country. Currently, this exhibition space is reserved for showcasing the work of regional emerging artists.
St. Ambrose University is seeking participants in a print portfolio exchange exploring the topic of Justice, the 2015-16 project theme for the College of Arts and Sciences.
The prints in the portfolio will portray the fight for social justice in the visual language of comics, graphic novels, and zines. We encourage artists to explore the broad spectrum of the fight for justice from the common and everyday reality to the global and even fantastical.
The portfolio will be exhibited in the Morrissey Gallery in late February 2016. The portfolio is open to all printmaking media, and there is no participation fee.
The Morrissey Gallery is a set of glass-covered showcases outside the entrance to the Allaert Auditorium in the Galvin Fine Arts Building which showcases performances for all ages and diverse audiences. Following the exhibition this portfolio will be reserved for exhibition on campus and in the community; a second portfolio will be donated to the university's Special Collections. The remainder of the editions will be distributed to participating artists.
