Martin Art Gallery looks forward to welcoming campus and community partners back into our galleries in person this year with a series of dynamic exhibitions.

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our community, and so safe access to the Gallery and the Campus will be determined by the leadership of the College following the advice of an advisory council informed by state and national health guidance. Conditions of access may be subject to change without notice and so we encourage you to check here and with the College's main website for guidance as to masking policies and general access to our spaces.


Martin Art Gallery will be temporarily closed as we search for a new director, but please check back in the fall for updates once we're back up and running.

This summer we look forward to hosting James F.L. Carroll for a solo exhibition in the Martin Art Gallery. Carroll is a well-known and prodigious artist, is also an energetic and iconic force who has been promoting the visual arts in the Lehigh Valley and beyond for decades as the founding director of the New Arts Program in Kutztown. His adventurous mark making on canvas or hand-made paper is the result of his insatiable curiosity to explore new possibilities.
