Phyllis Straus Gallery (CAB)

Floor PlanThe Phyllis Straus Gallery is a space for students to engage in the making of visual cultures, innovations, experimentation, and expression through exhibitions and events in contemporary art. Through juried and group exhibitions — as well as solo student showcasings made by appointment — Bachelors of Fine Arts students are given the opportunity to submit their work for potential selection for upcoming shows. Upon acceptance, works by these artists will be on display, accompanied by publication and press for the exhibition. Surrounding student exhibitions, collective events from artists, poets, musicians, and like-minded creative individuals will also take place. Above all, the Phyllis Straus Gallery is a center where openness, collaboration, creative inquiry, and the establishment of community is encouraged. We emphasize community to help provide a richer investment in learning and idea-sharing that we hope to see in a larger context around us.

Gallery Usage

The gallery will be open for documentation and personal student projects by appointment — through FAB Labs’ reservation calendar — and, when possible, walk-ins are welcome. Collaboration is encouraged. Please always communicate with each other so that the space is most effectively utilized.

Protocol

As a communal space, respect for the gallery and the work within it should always come as the first priority. Everyone is expected to leave the space as they found it, which, according to each case, will include:

  • Sand, spackle, and paint walls — use tarps!
  • Sweep floors.
  • Clean off brushes, paint, spatula, etc.
  • Put everything back in the closet.
  • Turn off the lights.

All materials, including tarps, paint, spackling, sanding paper, brooms and brushes, etc. are provided. Please be mindful of the usage of these materials since our funding is limited, and let’s keep our storage room clean and organized. Works displayed in the gallery for exhibition should not be deinstalled without prior notification to the gallery staff. Please always treat each other with respect.
