Spencer Gallery

The Western Libraries has provided an area in The D.B. Weldon Library for the scheduled display of works of art for public viewing.  This area is called the Spencer Gallery, and is located on the first floor.
Exhibits should be original, finely executed and finished.  Selection and authorization of exhibitions are based on the collective decision of the Spencer Gallery Committee. Exhibits should not have as their focus the explicit advocacy of political, religious or other doctrines of any purpose or group.  Controversial themes, nevertheless, should not be deliberately avoided.

Artists who wish to display their art in the Spencer Gallery should:

  • email the Spencer Gallery Committee
  • phone the Research Help Desk 519-661-3162
  • or inquire in person at the Weldon Service Desk
