Located in Arts West, Gallery 406 was born from a generous donation from Adjunct Assistant Professor of Fine Arts, Barbara Rhoades. The space boasts an expansive and beautiful gallery of 1500 square feet, which allows the Art Department to bring the work of exceptional contemporary artists to the doorstep of Elon art majors. Graduating majors also culminate their senior year with an exhibition of their thesis body of work in Gallery 406, alongside a reception and artist talk, giving them a full professional exhibition experience.
Also in Arts West, The (not) Gallery is a small project space where students can explore and play with ideas, as well as create immersive installations.
The Living Studio, located under the pine trees across the street from Arts West and Scott Studios, is the culmination of a collaboration between Environmental Studies and Art. Students in the green design program rebuilt the donated structure, which now acts as an experimental installation space for such courses as Eco-Art and Interactive Art.
Student works, purchased as part of Elon’s permanent collection, are also exhibited in various spaces around campus.
