J. Scott Purdy's "Trustafarian" Wins Best In Show!!!
The Coburn Gallery serves as Ashland University's primary resource for the viewing of visual art by the academic community as well as by the general public. These exhibitions form the visual foundation of the educational mission of the Department of Art. The gallery schedule focuses on the work of nationally known contemporary artists as well as Ashland University art faculty and students.
Every year the Coburn Gallery hosts the Faculty Exhibition, the Student Exhibition (juried by an outside juror with cash awards for outstanding work), the Senior Exhibition (featuring the work of graduating seniors) as well as The Ashland Exhibition, a juried summer event displaying the work of area artists. The Fall semester usually features the work of artists from across the country, as well as themed exhibitions. With its ample proportions, comfortable feel and excellent lighting, the gallery provides a space where all members of the campus community may enjoy the beauty and stimulation of the visual art experience.
