About Arcadia Exhibitions

Arcadia Exhibitions organizes programming for four distinct gallery spaces on campus throughout the calendar year. Its goal is to provide a broad-based community constituency with a stimulating roster of individual and thematic exhibitions of contemporary art ranging in scope and stature from the regional to the international. Public lectures, panel discussions, gallery tours, and receptions generate vital contexts for each exhibition while also serving as a forum to encourage dialogue among artists, educators, students, and the general public about contemporary art and its socio-cultural relevance.

Arcadia Exhibitions, in keeping with the measures enacted by the University to protect the health and well-being of the community, will be closing our galleries until further notice. Please return to this page for future updates. For more information on Arcadia’s response to the current health crisis, please follow this link.

Exhibition Spaces

Arcadia Exhibitions (formerly Arcadia University Art Gallery) now programs four venues on campus. The Spruance Gallery, housed in a renovated power station (built in 1892), is part of the Benton Spruance Art Center. The Harrison and Rosedale Galleries are located on the first and second floors of the University Commons, about a minute's walk from the Spruance Gallery.

The Spruance Gallery, a 1,100-square-foot facility housed within an 1892 power station designed by Horace Trumbauer, is a nationally recognized venue for contemporary art in the greater Philadelphia area. Since 1985, this space has provided the region with a stimulating roster of individual and thematic exhibitions, which often travel to other venues and are occasionally accompanied by publications.

Spruance Gallery

The Harrison Gallery is an open, highly trafficked exhibition space located near the main entrance of the University Commons.

Also in the University Commons, this exhibition venue is located just outside the Great Room, a popular facility for lectures, performances, and other major events on campus.

Rosedale Gallery

The Judith Taylor Gallery, located in the Landman Library, is a space dedicated to hosting exhibitions organized and created by students, either individually, in groups, or as part of a class. Any student currently enrolled in a university art course may sign out the space to present their own work, or to curate an exhibition of the work of others. For more information, contact exhibitions coordinator Matthew Borgen at 215-572-2629.

Richard E. Fuller Gallery (1962-1985)

The history of this original exhibition space is marked by extraordinary vision, a freak accident, and the tireless efforts of a collection of dedicated artists, educators, and patrons. Using photographs, artworks, documents, and other artifacts from the university’s archives, this exhibition chronicles the history of Arcadia University’s first exhibition space, the Richard E. Fuller Gallery.
