The Robert C. Turner Gallery is a student-run contemporary art gallery located in the McGee Pavilion adjacent to Harder Hall. The gallery supports the curricular programs of the School of Art and Design and the professional growth and development of students enrolled in its programs. The student leaders responsible for the programs of the gallery are drawn from those students enrolled in the Student-Run Gallery Internship Course. Proposals for exhibitions are sought each semester and reviewed by the gallery interns. In the late spring of each academic year, the gallery is devoted to MFA Thesis Exhibitions and the Senior Shows.
The Robert C. Turner Gallery under the auspices of the School of Art and Design at Alfred University serves as a forum for the professional and experimental display of student artwork organized by students or faculty in the School under direction of student leadership.
In keeping with the educational goals of the School of Art and Design, the Robert C. Turner Gallery seeks to provide a forum for current, innovative and relevant ideas in art; to facilitate non-curricular as well as curricular learning; to establish local, regional, and global connections; and to maintain a student-run professional gallery space driven by creative and conceptual freedom.
