Phyllis Gill Gallery

Phyllis Gill Gallery is an exciting space on the UCR campus for the display and discussion of student art.  The gallery’s principle mission is to provide a venue for undergraduate student exhibitions.  All forms of exhibition and performance are encouraged, including individual shows, class projects, screenings, multi-media events, collaborations and experiments.  Priority is given to students and shows generated from within the Art Department.

Phyllis Gill Gallery is located in room 245 on the 2nd floor of the Arts Building, just down the hall from the Art and Art History offices.

Application Process

Art Department policy regarding use of the Phyllis Gill Gallery:

Students, classes, and collaborative groups are encouraged to experiment with the process of installation, and to use the space as a venue for taking new risks with their work.  Students have the freedom to transform the space to best serve their exhibition.  However, the Phyllis Gill Gallery must be returned to its original condition upon completion of the exhibition, without exception. Students who do not return the space to its original condition will not be allowed any further exhibitions in the gallery.

UC Policy regarding events and receptions:

Previous Exhibitions

Phyllis Gill

The student gallery is named in honor of the ineffable, effervescent, loving and dedicated Phyllis Gill. Phyllis’ natural ability to nurture and organize the Department of Art made it possible to function, grow and thrive over three decades.  She joined the staff in 1973 following her graduation from UCR in English. Phyllis oversaw every aspect of an increasingly complex institution with energy, fresh roses, tireless commitment, and a finely honed wit — all in arguably the best wardrobe in Arts. Her heart and innumerable gifts were sincerely dedicated to the well-being and happiness of the faculty, staff, visitors and most importantly the students. This gallery is named as a token of thanks to someone who was the core of the department and whom we remember with great fondness since her retirement in 2006. We love her madly and owe much of the longevity, passion and health of our UCR community to her selfless and stellar legacy.
