The O'Connor Gallery is thrilled to announce we will resume our regular programming this coming fall for the 2021–2022 exhibition season.


The mission of the O’Connor Art Gallery is to present timely, relevant and focused contemporary art exhibitions that foster critical and thoughtful dialogue across disciplines. Exhibitions are curated with the Dominican student body in mind, as they are meant to introduce students to new and innovative artistic concepts, practices and strategies.

Located in Lewis Hall, steps from many of the art department’s studios and classrooms, the gallery is particularly accessible to art students as a space for intimate engagement and reflection. In addition to curated exhibitions, the gallery is the site of an annual juried student show and senior thesis exhibitions.

The gallery is open to the public during the academic year.
