Luce Gallery

The gallery exhibits artwork by regional and nationally known artists, as well as the work of Cornell College senior art majors in April and May. A generous endowment from the Henry Luce Foundation allows us to bring in visiting artists for gallery talks, lectures, and workshops.

Luce 2018–2019 schedule

Earthly Beauty
Sandra Dyas and Sue Coleman
September 16–October 14, 2018
Homecoming Reception: Saturday, October 6, 3–5 p.m.

Muses on the ordinary and often overlooked aspects of the local environment. Beauty that is unpolished and raw, quirky and tangled, sometimes difficult to interpret and codify. Although our use of media differs, our interest in what is sometimes considered “mundane” or “less than significant” speaks of an aesthetic that is integral to the world we inhabit.
