Tyler Art Gallery presents six art exhibitions annually in its temporary gallery location on the second floor of Penfield Library. These include outstanding traveling exhibitions, locally-produced loan exhibitions and the best work of the students and faculty. Exhibitions are often interdisciplinary in nature so that the gallery's programs will be relevant to a wide range of campus interests, as well as that of the public.
Tyler Art Gallery is a teaching gallery, regularly used by art classes as to provide an essential opportunity for students to have a direct encounter with original works of art of professional quality. The gallery also serves as a training base for the museum studies program, giving students the opportunity to see and participate in the day-to-day workings of an art gallery.
The gallery also houses a permanent collection of European, African and American drawings, prints, paintings, ceramics and sculpture from the 18th century to the present. The Grant Arnold Collection of Fine Prints contains over 500 prints by prominent American printmakers of the first half of the 20th century.
The gallery exhibition program is made possible through the support of the college; SUNY Oswego Auxiliary Services; Student Association; Artswego: The Arts Programming Board; and outside grants. Members of the Student Art Exhibition Committee, which receives funding from the Student Association, are responsible for the annual student exhibition.
