Gavilan College Art Gallery
The Gavilan College Art Gallery website is currently being remodled! Please come back by soon.
In the meantime, please visit the gallery in the month of February for The Freedom Quilt Project and Black History Month Art Exhibit.
The Freedom Quilt Project explores the possible use of quilts in the Underground Railroad and how each quilt pattern displayed in this exhibit may have held deeper meaning for slaves escaping to freedom. Artists and crafters from the Gavilan community—including faculty, staff, and students—have contributed pieced blocks to this special exhibit, which will be on display in the Gavilan Art Gallery through the month of February. When the exhibit concludes, the blocks will be pieced together and quilted. The final piece will be raffled to support scholarships for Gavilan students.
In honor of Black History Month the Gavilan Art Gallery will be showcasing artwork by local artists. The exhibit will include pieces by collage artist Louise Shields, Black folk artist Ernest Kirk, Jr., and sculptor Katie Johnson. This exhibit is made possible through a partnership with Gilroy Center for the Arts and Gavilan College.
