Vandiver Gallery of the Thrift Library

Vandiver GalleryLocated in the Thrift Library, the Vandiver Gallery's purpose is to mount rotating exhibitions that will support and enrich the students and public by promoting the Visual Arts in our community. The Vandiver Gallery supports the mission, vision, and values of Anderson University.

Vandiver Gallery is not a gallery with a permanent collection on exhibit, but a steadily rotating exhibition space that aims to directly influence our current population. Exhibitions highlight works in professional arts as well as studio-based arts: Graphic Design, Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Photography, Ceramics, and other mediums. Exhibitions are mounted in collaboration with the College of Visual and Performing Arts and have been guided by the Art Gallery Director, Kim Dick since January 2009.

All exhibits, programs, and activities are free and open to the public. The Vandiver Gallery supports our educational role on the Anderson University campus by hiring current students to perform many necessary roles such as public guides, assisting in art installation, and holding open gallery hours.

The Vandiver Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Thrift Library. Admission is free.

Gallery Hours:
Tuesday through Friday: 2:00 - 5:00
Sunday: 3:00 - 6:00
The Vandiver Gallery is closed during University breaks and holidays, except by appointment.

Parking is available at the Thrift Library or in the Visitors parking located on Boulevard.

Recent Paintings by Diane Kilgore Condon

The dogs the artists have rescued from the West Greenville neighborhood which is home to the ArtBomb figure heavily in Condon's work, as do many animals and plants used as symbols throughout the history of art. Many of these symbols are, of course, personal in nature, and some are universal, but the distinction between the two is left to the viewer.

Show Dates: August 25 – October 3, 2014

Artist Lecture: Thursday, September 5, at 6:00pm

Double Vision | Photographs by Jane Dorn and Jo Carol Mitchell-Rogers

Our adventures have resulted in independent bodies of work that we've both exhibited in various venues, and we've often discussed the ways in which our work is similar and dissimilar. We are intrigued by the fact that we can spend the same amount of time at the same location, yet come away with decidedly different takes on it. Thus far, roaming together with cameras has produced a wide range of photographic images, mixed media pieces, and paintings. This exhibition highlights the visual juxtaposition of two very different visions of a singular experience.

Show Dates: October 29 – December 13, 2014
