The School of Art and Visual Studies has three main galleries and will be developing a more contemporary gallery in the new Bolivar Building.
The Tuska Center for Contemporary Art in the Fine Arts Building (107 Fine Arts) is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art of regional and national importance. The schedule includes exhibitions of regional artists, art department faculty, and graduating MFA students. The gallery was dedicated to the late John Tuska, University of Kentucky faculty emeritus, in 1996.
The Barnhart Gallery (206 Reynolds Building #1) in the Reynolds Building presents a constantly changing series of exhibits from current BA, BFA, and MFA degree candidates. This is the principle student gallery.
The Rasdall Gallery at the University of Kentucky Student Center is an intimate exhibition space located on the second floor of the UK Student Center. Exhibitions are coordinated through the Student Center Board by a volunteer director and the work presented there can be very local or internationally in its scope.
