About the University Library Gallery
The Library Gallery was created in 2001-2002 with the combined support of Donald R. Gerth, President of CSUS; Robert Jones, Vice President for University Affairs; William J. Sullivan, Jr., Dean of the College of Arts and Letters; and Rollin Potter, Director of the School of the Arts. The gallery opened in April 2002 with an exhibition of paintings by northern California plein-air artists of the early twentieth century, the Society of Six.

The Library Gallery is part of the concept of making CSU Sacramento the “campus of the arts.” Located on the first floor of the University Library, it occupies a central position on campus where it can be accessed by CSUS students, faculty and staff, and by the people from the larger regional community. The Library Gallery serves the educational mission of the University by introducing nationally and internationally significant art to the campus and to the Sacramento region.

The Gallery is intended not only for the installation of art exhibitions, but also as a performance space for music recitals, poetry readings, and other arts-related events. It is open to everyone from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays. Admission is free.
