Uelsmann, and Edward Weston. Group shows have included artists Robert Colescott, Christo, Jim Dine, Eric Fischl, Roy de Forest, Helen Frankenthaler, Ann Hamilton, David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Roy Lichtenstein, Henri Matisse, Peter Milton, Robert Motherwell, James Rosenquist, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, and William Wegman.

Each spring the gallery presents the Montage Collective student art show, and the OSU BFA senior thesis show.
