Phyllis Gill Gallery

Phyllis Gill Gallery is an exciting new center 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.

Students should fill out a Gill Gallery Proposal Sheet, consisting of a description of the project and logistical details.  Students need the signature of a faculty sponsor to proceed. Groups should obtain the sponsorship of at least one faculty member, and class exhibitions will be scheduled by the instructor.  All exhibitions will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

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

Any campus installation outside of the Phyllis Gill Gallery must be approved via the Art Installation Form.

The student gallery is named in honor of the ineffable, effervescent, loving and dedicated Phyllis Gill. Gill’s 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.
