As a Marylhurst art student, you will have opportunities to learn from established artists, authors and musicians visiting the campus as well as showcase your own talents.

Since 1980, The Art Gym at Marylhurst University has worked to increase public understanding of the  contemporary art of the Pacific Northwest.

The Mayer Gallery in the Mayer Art Building exhibits work by local artists, faculty, alumni and students. The fall 2015 exhibition is The Planets: Paintings by Sarah Anne Burns, who earned her B.F.A. in Art at Marylhurst. Other recent exhibitions include works by student Jordan VanSise. VanSise was a finalist in the 2014 Sony World Photography Organization international competition.

Streff Gallery, located in Shoen Library, serves as a lounge and meeting place and displays month-long exhibits of a variety of art forms.
