The Art Gym

A university gallery and educational space, The Art Gym organizes exhibitions and publications for emerging and established artists based in the Pacific Northwest, fostering cultural risk-tasking and building the art historical record of the region.

The Art Gym's regionally recognized program was awarded the Governor's Arts Award in May 2005. Recipients are selected on the basis of dedication to the advancement of the arts in Oregon, length of commitment to the statewide arts community, highest level of artistic contribution and extent of reputation in the county, state and nation.

The Art Gym is a member of Portland Art Focus, a collaborative venture designed to increase cultural tourism to the region.

Gallery Hours
Tuesday – Sunday, 12-4pm

Free and open to the public.

Blake Shell, The Eichholz Director and Curator
Terri M. Hopkins, Curator Emerita

Departmental Support
The Art Gym and its programs are made possible by the support and contributions of the Art & Interior Design Department at Marylhurst University.

The exhibition program is an integral part of Marylhurst's art program, which serves approximately 150 art and interior design majors, 25 students preparing for graduate studies in art therapy, and many interdisciplinary majors with a focus in art.
