Welcome to art at Oregon State University. Our goal is to help stimulate intellectual and aesthetic inquiry, develop our students' creative and technical skills, and graduate engaged, culturally aware citizens. We are an inclusive unit—both majors and non-majors are welcome to learn here.
Our expert, artist-teacher faculty work closely with students in small studio classes. Renowned guest artists are frequently brought in to classes and hosted as featured speakers on campus. The Fairbanks Gallery on the first floor of Fairbanks Hall, hosts regional art exhibitions and the West Gallery regularly features student artwork.
The School of Arts & Communication is home to the JumpstART pre-college program in the studio arts. High school students from around the state and the U.S. attend this well known, one-week summer residency program.
Oregon State University’s Fairbanks Gallery is hosting a summer exhibit of current work by OSU art faculty members through Aug. 30 in Fairbanks Hall, 220 SW 26th St., Corvallis.
The exhibit includes works by Evan Baden, Michael Boonstra, Julia Bradshaw, Anna Fidler, Julie Green, Yuji Hiratsuka, Shelley Jordon, Andrew Myers, Andrew Nigon, Kerry Skarbakka, Katherine Spinella, Matt Williams, and John Whitten. It will showcase an array of styles and approaches to creating art, with work shown in areas of photography, painting, drawing, mixed media, printmaking and video.
Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extra hours during the Corvallis Arts Walk: Thursday, July 19, 4-8 p.m. and Thursday, Aug. 16, 4-8 p.m.
