Each spring, current Winthrop University students are eligible to submit their recent work to the Undergraduate Juried Exhibition. This exhibition is an opportunity for students to have their work selected by a prominent regional juror to exhibit in a professional gallery setting. This year’s juror is Adam Justice, the galleries director of University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Open to students in the Departments of Fine Arts and Design, this yearly exhibition showcases Winthrop’s brightest talent from areas such as painting, sculpture, jewelry/metals, printmaking, interior design, illustration, and photography.


Winthrop University Galleries presents up to 18 professional, faculty, and student exhibitions annually and offers accompanying educational programs, visiting artists, and opening receptions to inspire and enrich the lives of Winthrop students, faculty, staff, and regional audiences. Students also gain hands-on experience working as gallery assistants. WUG has enjoyed regional recognition and continues to strive to serve the campus and community by promoting academic excellence and human understanding through visual art and design. Exhibitions and events are always free and open to the public. There are three galleries in two buildings; the Rutledge and Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Galleries in Rutledge Building and Lewandowski Student Gallery in McLaurin Hall.

The Galleries are funded through the College of Visual and Performing Arts and the generous support of the Patrons of Winthrop University Galleries, The Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery Endowment Fund, and the Edmund. D. Lewandowski Student Gallery Endowment Fund.
