Juniors also exhibit in an annual group exhibition and students are able to curate and organize shows in conjunction with their mentors and the Gallery Director.

The Hewitt Gallery of Art, comprised of the Esplanade and the adjacent Black and White Galleries in the Nugent and Main Buildings, offers the Marymount Manhattan community exposure to professional artists and to the larger art world.

The Gallery is known in the New York art community as an alternative exhibition space showcasing contemporary art of emerging and mid-career artists. Innovative and challenging works of art reflecting a wide range of concerns and styles are presented in changing thematic exhibitions. Recent professional exhibitions have been Art & Politics: See it Now!, Text Out of ContextSelf-similarity in Math, Nature and Art, and The Mind’s Eye: Sight & Insight.

In conjunction with the exhibitions, gallery receptions give students the opportunity to engage with professional artists, critics, collectors, and curators. Many of the exhibiting artists are also guest presenters in our Art and Art History classes.
