Staniar Gallery is a 1,300 square foot space located in Wilson Hall in the Lenfest Center, home of the departments of art, music and theatre. The gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary and art historical works in all media by regionally, nationally, and internationally recognized artists.

The Gallery was conceived of as a pedagogical space and works in tandem with the Art Department. Exhibiting artists spend time in the Art Department conducting critiques, giving lectures and mentoring students. Gallery internships provide students the opportunity to participate in the entire exhibition process by working closely with the Gallery Director and exhibiting artists. Each year graduating seniors in studio art present their senior thesis projects in Staniar Gallery.

Staniar Gallery was opened in 2006 with generous funding from distinguished Washington and Lee alumnus Burt Staniar.

The gallery is open to the public free of charge and the hours during the academic year are Monday through Friday, 9:00AM to 5PM. For additional information, please call (540) 458-8861.
