The Cathy and Jesse Marion Art Gallery in the Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center is dedicated to the presentation of educationally supportive exhibitions for the benefit of SUNY art students, the campus at large, and the local community. The gallery also serves the in-house needs of the Fredonia Department of Visual Arts with exhibits of recent work by students and faculty. Graduating senior thesis shows are held at the conclusion of each semester.
Exhibitions of work by professional artists from off campus are also shown in the Cathy and Jesse Marion Art Gallery. All media and thematic subjects are considered. Each exhibition is widely promoted both on campus and off with news releases and announcement cards. Shows open with a catered reception for both students and the public at large.
