Natalie and James Thompson Gallery

Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery

The exhibition program at SJSU is one of the most extensive and diverse among art programs in California, providing an essential resource for every single class that the department offers, while also serving as a cultural and educational focal point for the entire University and the communities of Silicon Valley.  The main exhibition space is the professionally-curated Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery, in the Art Building, funded through the Natalie and James Thompson Endowment.

In addition to supporting major expenses for exhibitions, publications, and special projects, the Endowment also funds a weekly Tuesday Night Lecture Series that brings a remarkable group of artists, designers, and scholars to campus.  Further, it provides funding for visiting artists and scholars for lectures, demonstrations, and critiques within individual classes.  In addition to the Thompson Gallery, there are six student galleries and numerous display cases lining the hallways, which showcase the work of our undergraduate, BA, BFA, and MFA students.  Student exhibitions change weekly throughout the academic year.

Student Art Galleries

The Department of Art & Art History presents a weekly rotation of student exhibitions in our six student art galleries and ten display cabinets located in the Art Building and Industrial Studies Building. Artist receptions held every Tuesday evening, 6 – 8pm, and are open to the public free of charge.  Support emerging artists and participate in this exciting art community!
