The Suffolk University Gallery is the Art & Design Department’s main exhibition space. Located on the sixth floor of the Sawyer Building, the gallery presents exciting exhibits and related programs that reflect our increasingly visual and image-driven world. The gallery aims to engage the whole Suffolk community while adding to larger conversations taking place in Greater Boston's cultural arena. Exhibits of student work from all departments, as well as themed curated exhibitions, provide an important link between and for students, faculty, and visitors.

What is an artist curator? An artist-curator is a practicing artist who also curates shows or runs not-for-profit spaces from which they exhibit their art and that of other artists. For some artist-curators, it is the freedom to create art, control its output and have a say in how it is exhibited that appeals, for others it is a means of survival, a way of gaining exposure for the art that they and others do.i
Like musicians who produce albums or conduct orchestras, actors who write screenplays and direct movies, many visual artists also curate exhibitions in gallery or academic settings, in addition to their own art practice. The artists in this exhibit maintain both these activities, one often informing the other. The act of curating parallels the activity in the studio, i.e., an idea is expressed and manifested materially.
