Founded in 1978, Bannister Gallery aims to present a diverse set of art that ranges from traditional media, painting and sculpture, to more contemporary formats, including photography, graphic design and digital media.

The exhibits are selected by the Bannister Gallery Committee, which is made up of the Gallery Director and members of the Art Department Faculty. The Gallery strives to create an inclusive environment for the public with the aim of building relationships within the arts community of Rhode Island.

Exhibits are generally on display for three to four weeks and usually include a lecture by the artist(s) or other related talks and events. Learn how to submit an exhibition proposal.

2022 Rhode Island College 3-D Faculty Exhibition (September 1-23, 2022)

Bannister Gallery opens the 2022-23 exhibition schedule with our Annual Faculty Exhibition, which offers an opportunity for the community to experience first-hand the artistic talent that is in residence at Rhode Island College. These faculty artists are integral to the current aesthetic and conceptual dialogues present in our studio art department. Their practices include research-based and interdisciplinary methods that are at the core of contemporary art. RIC’s faculty artists exhibit widely and receive prestigious awards, grants, fellowships, and residencies. As a result, they encourage students by their example to think across boundaries. Collectively, these distinguished, award-winning artists bring a unique vision to the region’s cultural tapestry.
