Art Gallery Mission Statement

The Cuesta College Art Gallery presents an annual, juried student exhibition and a changing selection of exhibitions by professional local, national, and international visual artists. Exhibitions are contemporary in content and reflect the educational goals of the Fine Arts programs. The Art Gallery course involves students in the installation and professional practices of the exhibitions and various aspects of gallery management. Through stimulating exhibitions and events the gallery program strives to promote dialogue and engagement between the programs in Fine Arts, Cuesta College students and staff, and the community.

The Cuesta College Art Gallery, room 7170, is located on Highway 1, halfway between San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay in the courtyard of the Cultural and Performing Arts Center. Admission to the gallery is free.

We have quite an exciting schedule for the Art Gallery during the Fall 2014 semester!

Christopher Miles, Los Angeles based artist, educator, curator and writer, will start the semester off with his mixed media sculptures.  

Always a favorite, the Cuesta College Art Faculty will conclude the semester with a variety of art forms in the areas of their expertise.
