The Art Gallery

Where Art Reaches You


The Gallery at TCC is a place where students and the surrounding community can find artistic expression in all mediums, and from all world cultures and historic eras.

With an exterior that seems to change from every angle and naturally lit, unique display spaces, The Gallery is a perfect venue for special exhibitions, lectures, readings, and our rotating collections.
