Fine Arts

Events at the Robert W. Regier Art Gallery

Throughout the school year, the Robert W. Regier Gallery (located in the Luyken Fine Arts Center) features exhibits by local, regional, national and international artists, including Bethel alumni, in all types of media. Exhibits are normally on display for 3–4 weeks and generally include a public reception for the artist sometime within that time frame. Moreover, visiting artists occasionally give lectures, meet with classes or conduct workshops with students.

The last two exhibits of the school year are traditionally the Student Art Exhibit, featuring the work of students in all Bethel art classes, and the Senior Art Exhibit, the culminating show for graduating art majors.

Admission to the Robert W. Regier Art Gallery is free.
Monday–Friday   9 a.m.—5 p.m.
Sunday   2—4 p.m.

The gallery is closed during school breaks and holidays and in the summer.
