The Caifornia State University Channel Islands Art Program features an ongoing series of exhibitions in four separate galleries.

Napa Hall Gallery – Christophe Bourely, Director

This bright and spacious gallery is the University’s premier art exhibition space, and hosts a wide range of art exhibitions featuring regional, national and internationally recognized artists. Though CI is located in close proximity to Los Angeles, the mission of the Napa Hall Gallery is to expose students to a diverse array of emerging artists, experimental media, and varied artistic practices—in other words, to bring the artists and creative practitioners directly to the students. Located in the main art building, this space has featured: video projects, architectural models, painting, performances, sculpture, photography, design, and even elaborate neon installations in conjunction with the Museum of Neon Art. The Napa Gallery also hosts the “Campus Crossover Series,” a showcase for cutting-edge graduate student work from CI’s neighboring institution, the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The Napa Hall Gallery is located at the entry to Napa Hall
California State University Channel Islands

Gallery hours are: Monday through Friday, 9AM-5PM

Broome Gallery – Irina D. Costache, Director

Located in the John Spoor Broome Library, the mission of the Broome Gallery is to present a wide range of artists, themes, and media and expose CI students, faculty and staff, as well as the community to diverse artistic views and conceptual possibilities. The aim of the gallery is to provide the visual and theoretical platform that supports the mission of the university and the four pillars of the Academic Programs: International Perspectives, Interdisciplinary Studies, Multicultural Views and Community Engagement. Additional exhibitions include the CI Faculty Collaborations series, held in the spring semester and Artist-Teacher, held in the fall. Faculty members have been regularly included in the Broome exhibition program, as both curators and artists.

The Broome Gallery is located on the second floor of the John Spoor Broome Library
Gallery hours are: Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Gradwall Gallery – Christophe Bourely, Director

Each year, faculty members confer and select a small number of outstanding graduating senior students who will have the opportunity to develop a solo exhibition for the Gradwall Gallery. Also located in Napa Hall, this setting has become a thriving space for experimental installations and dynamic solo work. An undergraduate solo exhibition is a rare occurrence amongst colleges and universities, and students selected to exhibit in this space also receive a stipend to help complete their projects.

The Gradwall Gallery is located in Napa 1154
Gallery hours are: Monday through Friday, 9AM-5PM

The Palm-Temporary – Christophe Bourely, Director

Classroom collaborations, small group shows, curatorial explorations, and student-proposed projects are the hallmark of the Palm-Temporary Gallery. As the most recent addition to the gallery line-up, the Palm-Temporary adds to the vivid experience of being an art major, and gives students the chance to see and experience the full range of projects unfolding in classes throughout the Art Program.
