About the Galleries

Gaither Gallery

Located on the first floor of York Performance Hall, the Gaither Gallery is closed for installation until August 2019.

Scheierman Gallery

Located on the second floor of York Performance Hall, the Scheierman Gallery exhibits the Warner Sallman Collection and is open Tuesday and Friday 1- 4 p.m. Major works from the Sallman Collection are on display in the Scheierman Gallery, located in the York Performance Hall and Galleries on the campus of Anderson University, in Anderson, Indiana. The Scheierman Gallery was built in 2012 through the generous donation of Mabel Scheierman. She and her late husband, Kenneth Scheierman, have been dedicated members of the Church of God and generous supporters of Anderson University. For many years, a copy of Sallman’s Head of Christ hung in the Scheierman home, giving the family comfort and joy as they shared their lives together. It is their desire that those who come to Anderson University can enjoy Sallman’s original pieces in person.

Jessie C. Wilson Gallery

Located on the second floor of the Krannert Fine Arts Center, the Wilson Gallery is open Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The Jessie C. Wilson Gallery, built in 1979, serves Anderson University and the city of Anderson with monthly exhibitions featuring the work of regionally and nationally recognized artists.

Upholding the mission of Anderson University, the gallery is dedicated to enriching and engaging students as they gain a global perspective through art and design exhibitions of the highest quality and to promoting the visual arts within our community. The gallery is committed to exhibiting artists and designers uncompromisingly engaged in their faith and professional artistic endeavors.

Exhibitions presented by the gallery will bring contemporary art of both established and emerging artists to the academic institution as well as to broader Central Indiana. By making these exhibitions accessible to the public, we hope to encourage a spirit of inquiry in both the university and the region.
